Vanessa Quesnelle’s The Abyss Burrow is a dance and story piece made up of loosely related memories separated by movement. She takes us through remembrances that share a common but somehow disparate thread: watching reruns with her brother; a confession of infidelity to a husband; high school; a grandmother’s house; and finally, to clarity.

Quesnelle’s circular dance movements are strong and graceful, and are a wonderfully evocative interpretation of motion through time, space and memory. Her performance of the story segments is equally powerful. The show has a “stream of consciousness” feel but at the same time, Quesnelle keeps it well-grounded. This is a lovely, moody piece that flits in and out of the edges of darkness.

— Wendy Burke

 

From the Fringe program:

A woman awakes to discover she is at the bottom of a deep hole – and the only way out is to embark upon a fantastically wide-eyed trip through pockets of space and time. An unforgettable journey.
