The Abyss Burrow


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




Created and Performed by

Vanessa Quesnelle


“Vanessa Quesnelle's strengths and subtleties

are captivating in this hybrid of theatre and dance.

Physical movement is a big part of this performance,

seamlessly timed with sound art, music and lighting cues that pull you down into the abyss of subconscious and altered memory. 

It's a beautiful study in recollection and dance upheld by Quesnelle's incredible acting and physical ability.”


“Superb... I was mesmerized.”

-The Beat Magazine



“Graceful… Evocative… Powerful.”

-The Winnipeg Free Press

“The premise of the script is brilliant,

but it's also one that challenges the audience beyond the senses. They must think and figure out what it is that is happening. 

The ending is wonderful. Abyss Burrow is a show that

should be on your must-see list.”

-The London Free Press
