A collaboration between Saffy Setohy, Aya Kobayashi, Joanna Young, Nicolette Mcleod. 

Bodies of Water is a playful, multi-sensory performance weaving together dance, music and visual art.

 

We encounter water in our everyday lives. It gives us life and flows through us. Water is energy, it destroys and it creates. We invite you to immerse yourselves in an exploration of our relationship with this transformative element.

“A joy to watch and feel.  I felt a sense of freedom and how we are all part of the environment.”  Audience comment

“The unpredictability of water, weather, out of our control, aptly fit with the current climate emergency we are in.  At times it really felt like the journey of a river, a conversation with water. Beautiful.” Lorna Irvine, Fjord Review
