Embarqued: Stories of Soil is a dance-theatre work centered around a transformative shipmast inviting migratory reflections, revealing post-colonial foundations and mythology. Through questioning existing relationships to memorials we call up all who made our united history, enabling us to viscerally and holistically connect our country both forwards and backwards in space and time.
