Featuring fog, debris, muck, viscous liquid, broken glass and burned plastic, Vessel is full of references to impermanence, liminal spaces and shifting states. The opening-night performance by VestAndPage, on the evidence presented, successfully wove more visceral and mythical reflections on death and rebirth into the narrative of urban regeneration.

A Morphologic Journey (On the Borders of our Bodies) started is a performance in four episodes, inspired by the journey of Ulysses under the aspect of his encounters with a variety of women. Meetings with archetypes of Circe, Calypso, Nausicaa and Penelope are guideline analogies of behavioural patterns of people on the run, men and women in search to forget, longing for union and something that may finally last.
