Contemporary dance expressing the intangible, invisible, the divine.
It is with mixed emotions and that I inform you that our December 14-15 performance, "Amahl and the Night Visitors" will be Earthen Vessels' final celebratory performance. Earthen Vessels has been a tremendous success for the past 16 years because of people like you, and I am grateful for your support.
While closing my dance company, my labor of love, is bittersweet, I am ready to focus on a new kind of innovation. I will continue to work and collaborate with other organizations and companies in the dance and theater community here and regionally. However, closing out this chapter allows me to expand my reach and diversify my teaching palette and use dance movement as therapy. I will keep you informed as I realize my vision for this new direction.
I invite you to join us for our final performance, where we will also celebrate the legacy built and the groundbreaking performances the company has introduced over the years and the people behind them. Earthen Vessels has produced more than 100 ballets, drawing on 110 professional dancers and 12 choreographers. The company has presented more than 200 dance concerts to more than 40,000 people, including 12,000 children.
Amahl and the Night Visitors, a choreography by James Sewell, is a heartwarming story of hope, healing and generosity; a wonderful holiday tradition that is perfect for the entire family. In keeping with our mission of reaching diverse audiences through contemporary dance, these performances, as always, are accessible to the hearing impaired community with choreography that incorporates American Sign Language. Tickets will be available on the Earthen Vessels website beginning November 15, 2013.
