Ship of Dreams



In Ship of Dreams, the audience is invited in on an intimate reading of one mothers letters to her daughter and a private glimpse back to a time of small pleasures and family duty. Passionately, we are led through generations of memories and hardships, both in word and movement. The focus centres on a dancer as she explores haunting expressions and hangs on lasting words from the letters. Although slower placed, this grounded dance drama shows a depth of mystery and emotion through the opened window of the past. Reviewed by Jessamyn Stewart.

    The Fringe’s “Ship of Dreams” will appeal to history buffs, modern dance aficionados and creative literary types who enjoy symbolism. The deeply personal story is written, choreographed and danced beautifully by Maureen Shea. Congratulations to her and the lighting and sound technicians who weave Arvo Part`s Summa for Strings, Constellations by Balmorhea and spoken word into a touching piece that demonstrates how our ancestors’ stories of everyday life become part of us and enable us to pass our history down to the next generation.
