THE WISDOM OF WATER
 
What is Water? Water is a conscious entity that thinks and feels. A stream is a baby, a river an adult, the ocean is the Great All-powerful One. The Earth is water's creation. The water within and around us came from somewhere out there in the Universe for some reason known only to itself. This same water has been circulating through the earth ever since – through every bird, animal, tree and rock. It has been everywhere, seen everything. The same stream of life that runs through our veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures, connecting us to all living things past and present.
 
Wisdom of WaterTHE WISDOM OF WATER is a poetic performative presentation of water in all its aspects. Taking the book by John Archer (*) as its point of departure, to create a mesmerising and sensual, inter-disciplinary work combining physical-theatre, dance, music, song, textual and gestural drama.
