Bunker + Vault

Solo

Bunker + Vault explores the resilience and strength of the female body, as well as the unwavering pressure it has undergone for generations, while drawing inspiration from the choreographer’s own experience. The piece was inspired by Rebecca Margolick’s research about the young female workers who resided at the Clara de Hirsch House in New York from 1899 to 1950. 


Variations of this piece were presented in Carcassonne (France), Berlin (Germany), Mexico (Mexico), Portland (USA), Montréal (Canada), New York (USA), Vancouver (USA), Wells (Canada) and Singapore (Asia) – online only. The full version of Bunker +Vault was presented in Solos Hecho a Mano in San José (Costa Rica) in November 2021.
