WATER (OR THE SECRET LIFE OF OBJECTS) is a 6-hour epic (an excerpt of which will be presented) set in the near future where a flood of mythic proportions has destroyed 70% of the population. January 30th and 31st only.
This piece bears witness to memories of survivors and surviving objects. What do people do when they cannot trust the thing they most need? What happens to the souls of objects when they outlive their owners? Through textures and tones, this fragmented, multi-lingual epic journey to the "source" (part installation, part narrative) explores what it means to survive, or not to survive, or to exist in the space between.
