About the Show Less...

A distinctive visual experience about that most contemporary of issues - climate change. Read More >

Imagine you looked out of the window one morning and saw jellyfish. No birds fluttering, just a sky full of gelatinous animals. Every now and then a shark of tuna glides noiselessly past. And everywhere…water.

With the strange beauty of a dream, Water sets two deeply personal stories against a backdrop of increasingly unstable climate change. Two half brothers clash over the legacy of their dead father, while another man runs from the impending birth of his child.

The show mixes video and live music to create a unique experience.
