Welcome to Deep Sea.
A whale falls to the darkest depths. Once animal, now host, its carcass slowly decays, providing sustenance to alien ecosystems. Its matter is distributed through multiple pathways, intercepting in a spontaneous unfolding of divergent, yet equal, parts.
Choreographer and dancer Rebecca Jensen (Overworld, Deep Soulful Sweats), along with a large ensemble, create and reimagine systems. In a porous, fluid and volatile reality, a mass comes together to prioritise transition and transformation. Deep Sea Dances unfolds as structures weaken and a new ecology emerges.
In a world whose future remains uncertain, Deep Sea Dances draws us away from the mainland, past the beach and into the abyss.
