Vancouver Fringe Fest review: There’s a mystery at the heart of The Abyss Burrow
There’s a mystery at the heart of The Abyss Burrow, in which performer Vanessa Quesnelle intersperses repetitive dance moves accompanied by spooky electronic music with scenes in which she revisits the memories of an unspecified “you”. The show’s conceit is a bit of a trap, though: her character’s isolation and confusion are alienating, and Quesnelle’s emotionally flat delivery doesn’t help. The show concludes with a satisfying twist, but it takes a long time to get to that payoff.
