Earthen Vessels today announced that it is presenting its final performances of the season with the dance production, “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” on December 14-15, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. each day. The performance is a wonderful holiday tradition for the entire family. It is also accessible to the hearing impaired community, with choreography by James Sewell that incorporates American Sign Language. 

The performances will also be a celebration of the legacy built and groundbreaking work the company has introduced in its 16-year history.  A former soloist with the Houston Ballet and its first African American ballerina, Earthen Vessels Founder and Artistic Director Sandra Organ Solis formed Earthen Vessels in 1997 with a focus on bringing dance to new and diverse audiences. 

“While closing Earthen Vessels is bittersweet, I am ready to focus on a new kind of innovation,” Solis said. “While I will continue to work in the dance and theater community here and regionally, closing out this chapter allows me to expand my reach and diversify my teaching palette and use dance movement as therapy.” After this production, Earthen Vessels will continue to collaborate with other organizations while reimagining its mission.
