Theatre Terrific Presents: Water, July 6-8 2012

“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.”

 Theatre Terrific is pleased to present a mythic environmental tale: Water. This site-specific production tells the story of one river and its diverse inhabitants- both past and present. Water runs June 29 to July 8, 2012 at Andy Livingston Park.

WATER constitutes the existence of our world as we know it.  Our weather, our food, our transportation, our health, our surroundings, the essence and quality of our life–floats on the waterways of the world. WATER tells the story of one river-the gods that fought, the fish that swam, the fishermen that fished, the water-carriers that fetched and water buyers who bought; all deeply affecting the very life and soul of the river’s flow.  With songs, dance, celebrations, large puppetry, raging passions, and live music- the rivers journey in WATER is a microcosm of civilization’s greatest and most precious element on this planet.

“If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.” Loren Eiseley, The Immense Journey.

Since 1985, Theatre Terrific has been bringing together artists who would normally never work together. Their diverse ensembles include professional and emerging artists with or without developmental, physical, or mental health issues, gender or language challenges.

“I was moved by the performers, by their determination and how uniquely they presented themselves. The encouragement for those with physical and mental challenges at Theatre Terrific impressed me.”-Review Vancouver, Karen Fitzgibbon

Water is presented by Theatre Terrific, and is directed by Susanna Uchatius. It features an ensemble of all abilities – actors in wheelchairs, developmental, physical, mental health challenges along with professional actors. The creative team includes James Coomber (Sound Design & Co-Director), Tim Gosley (Puppeteer Master of The Muppets fame) and Lois Dawson (Production Manager) with stage management by Diana Magallon.
