An anchor for each vessel explores various ways of anchoring the body to the ground, using its own weight and appendages, while being pulled and submerged by the tides of the ocean. Body taps and pounds, hands cascade and silently deliver, each sound a discreet manifestation of the tension between confinement and release, like the muted grind of an anchor as it lugs and slips across the ocean floor. Performed in Montaulk, NY, amidst the approach of a hurricane.
