Every day we hear we are running out of water in California, but what does water mean exactly? In this imaginative show, creator/performer Charline Su draws our attention to the deeper meaning of water and how it brings life to us and our planet. Su first draws us into her vision with an extraordinarily beautiful pantomime under a silvery shroud that flows, dips and shimmers like – yes – water. Then, with fine assist by actor-dancers Eric Losoya, Lauren Murphy and Kila Packett, we hear eloquent warnings of what we are about to lose, amid movements that express the anguish and sense of loss this will mean. Taking words from Joan Didion’s ‘Holy Water’ and from contributing writers Jason Dennis and Henry Ong, we explore mans relationship with water through the ages. This poem in song and dance is beautifully lit by Chris Chapman. Go with the flow!
