Water Tight


We use it, drink it, wash with it, play in it, we need it, yet under the surface, at times we abuse it.

Sparked by ADPs current project Moving to Zero, exploring behavioural change towards emissions reductions and more sustainable futures, the ensemble has explored qualities, energies and uses of water that survey our interactions with this powerful element.

We examine through dance and physical states; the body as water, its renewing and destructive forces felt on the body, and the impact of the human in its midst. Immersed in water during the work, we seek to uncover our intimate connection to water, where it dictates our survival and prosperity, yet our carelessness and ignorance towards the preciousness of this vital resource.


A commissioned work presented at Art, Not Apart Festival Canberra, March 2018. Performed in the Shine Dome moat (Australian Academy of Science)
