About the Project

Vessels, a 7-woman performance on a floating vessel in the Mississippi asks: How did millions of Africans survive the Middle Passage and end up sane? Utilizing the mechanics of song — long-meter hymns, moaning, harmonies and the vocalizations manifested in restricted spaces — Vessels ignites the musicality present in bound bodies.
