Requesting a $15 donation at the door –cash or check- Toward furthering the development of this important and timely new work! An innovative hour of theatrical experimentation. We invite anyone 14yrs. and older to come and contribute to a theatre piece “in the process of becoming”.
MOVING WATER will consist of three stories, past, present, and future, that play out in overlapping and intertwining relation to one another. The symbolic centerpiece of the work concerns water scarcity and insecurity, and tells the stories of a scientist’s quest to discover the hidden source of cholera, several storm-tossed survivors of a flood, and an international waystation where exiles are hoping to migrate to safer harbors. Through highly visual staging, movement, music, and video, this poetic, absurdist, and surprisingly funny work will carry audiences into a deeper appreciation for and understanding of our fragile world.
