Damien Jalet and Kohei Nawa. OzAsia Festival. Dunstan Playhouse Adelaide Festival Centre. 26-27 October 2019
With Vessel, Belgian choreographer, Damien Jalet, and renowned Japanese visual artist, Kohei Nawa, have produced a disturbing yet compelling, profound, fantastical and visually arresting work that tends more toward the performance art installation realm than dance genre; and yet, only dancers could perform this work given the extreme range of physical demands placed on the performers’ bodies by the concept, choreography and design.
