In this playful, resourceful performance, one solitary soul uses consumer products to build entire worlds inside a fish tank, working on the spot against a rising horizon of water. Rockets, cityscapes, satellites, and more, are created from the interaction of aqua and everyday objects. Audiences may never look at clothespins, CDs, or turkey basters, the same way again. Small in scale, but vast in its implications, High Water is a testament to human creativity, as well as a shrewd commentary on its dangers. Comedic, suspenseful, and beautifully executed, it’s a work that asks for our concentration, and rewards it amply. The colour, the choreography, and the sheer poetry, are a thrill for children and adults alike. For ticket information, visit www.pushfestival.ca.
