Water - Tricycle Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
FOLLOWING their acclaimed production of Twelfth Night, Filter returns to the Tricycle Theatre with Water – from Tuesday, February 1 to Saturday, March 5, 2011.
In Canada, two half brothers clash over the legacy of their dead father. Meanwhile in Germany a young female special advisor tries to push through a deal at a political summit, and in Mexico a young Englishman prepares to dive the deepest freshwater cave in the world.
With the strange beauty of a dream, Water inter-cuts between powerful individual stories, exploring man’s desire to push himself to the limits in an increasingly unstable world.
Filter, with its distinctive theatrical style, exposes the workings of a production – video is mixed onstage and sound is produced live by a musician and the performers to create a unique, ‘live chemistry’ experience for audiences.
Created by Filter and David Farr, Water is a Filter and Lyric Theatre Hammersmith Co-Production, in association with Warwick Arts Centre.
Water is directed by David Farr, with music by Tim Phillips, set and costume design by Jon Bausor, video design by Andi Watson and lighting design by Jon Clark.
