Contemporary dance expressing the intangible, invisible, the divine.
Earthen Vessels' 15th Anniversary Season celebrates the holidays and heritage that have inspired traditional dance fare for our seasons.
We start off the year with our 7th annual production of AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS, lovingly choreographed with American Sign Language by James Sewell. Our deaf community members are embraced by this beautiful family-friendly introduction to ballet and opera, which is illuminated by a magical message.
Earthen Vessels combines our African American and Latino history evenings into OUR HERITAGE SERIES, "Elementally Earthen," featuring the sassy music of Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and our take on the Elements – including a premiere, "Periodic Episodes," by former Martha Graham Company dancer, Steve Rooks.
The Season closes with Sacred Dances at the exquisite chapel of The Villa De Matel; ideal for those who wish to experience dance in a different context! Come one, come all and experience our unique brand of "dances you can get" that encourage you to be moved in spirit, mind and body!
