Filter Theatre & Lyric Hammersmith
Created by Filter Theatre and David Farr

“…a distinctive and distinguished piece of theatre.”
—The Independent (UK)

In a beautiful theatrical reverie, director David Farr joins forces with Filter Theatre to present an exquisitely crafted story that reveals how the cracks in our most intimate human relationships resonate on a global scale.

Set beneath a vertical lake of light, ebbing from lavender to cerulean blue, Water intertwines two deeply personal dramas, both cast in the shadow of the struggle against climate change. Buoyed by live music and real-time video, this deft, dreamlike rendering of the personal and political asks how we can reach beyond ourselves and bond, like water, with those around us.
