Blue Space, a solo created and performed by Kelly McInnes, explores humanity’s intrinsic relationship to water. The work embodies the tensions between the healing that water offers us, along with our exploitation of it.

Blue Space is a reflection, a prayer and a mourning. It is hope, action, confusion, grief. It is remembering and healing. A celebration of oceans within oceans, waterfalls from wet eyes. Blue Space is all shades of blue.
