Water - we seem to know everything about this element. But when we take a closer look at it, it’s full of surprises and it’s still a mystery to scientists up to the present day.
Water is enormous power, sputtering life and sparkling joy.
May it be as a melting ice–block, a shimmering fountain or as ascending damp, as a refreshing drink or a sweeping wave, as an element of sound or reflector of light, in this performance it always takes on new forms. It inspires performers and audience alike and generates a poetry that gives us an idea of the Wonder of Life.
It starts with one single drop…

Press comments

”What a wonderful sound when water and glass sing together…
Hanging from the ceiling ice blocks melt and drop in a funny way…
On the stove water is boiling in a pot, hissing…
A dripping world of sound.”
