Philadelphia Premiere // Philadelphians Series

What does freedom sound like in confinement? In Vessels, seven women explore the transcendental possibilities of music during the Middle Passage. Set in an interactive, sculptural environment that invokes those infamous ships, this interdisciplinary, speculative history work explores singing as a survival tool. Vessels will premiere in fall 2018 in New Orleans, before heading to Philadelphia for its indoor world premiere.
