During a pandemic exacerbated by threatening storms, three apartment dwellers are thrown together in an existential struggle hinging on their personal stances on climate change and a developing water crisis. Zara, Pakistani immigrant and friend to Sergei the building’s super, is missing. They’ve been designing a secret project to save their building from an impending flood. Luna, a Mexican oceanographic student and Drew, a climate denier, son of the building’s owner, are quickly embroiled in the search.
A devised, multimedia physical theatre production with English/Spanish text and original music, Moving Water îs centered on the global water crisis, and endeavors to bring audiences into a deeper understanding of our human relationship to water.
