Presented in M1 CONTACT 2017, as the second part of Borderline, Vessel is Kuik Swee Boon’s deepening exploration of “Hollowbody”, a movement philosophy, and training methodology of T.H.E Dance Company. The dancers have to let go of all the unnecessary, yet be grounded in their heighten sense of self-awareness, discovering a sense of space and freedom that then activate a process of dialogue.
With Vessel, the strength is the core premise: what it means for each dancer when the body, heart and mind are aligned as one in movement to reveal the hidden depths of generosity and willpower.
