Synopsis
 
Set against the backdrop of catastrophic climate change, Water cuts between the stories of two brothers clashing over the legacy of their dead father while another man runs from the impending birth of his child.

Water is created by the theatre company Filter, is directed by David Farr, and is designed by Jon Bausor. It is a co-production with the Lyric, Hammersmith.

Water explores the desire to push oneself to the limits in a world with an increasingly unstable climate.

    'Imagine you looked out of the window one morning and saw jellyfish. No birds fluttering, just a sky full of gelatinous animals. Every now and then a shark or tuna glides noiselessly past. And everywhere ... water'.
With the strange beauty of a dream, Water cuts between powerful individual stories, exploring the human desire to push to the limits in an increasingly unstable world of climate change.
    In Canada two half-brothers clash over the legacy of their dead father. Meanwhile a young female special advisor tries to push through a deal at a political summit, whilst in Mexico a young Englishman prepares to dive the deepest freshwater cave in the world.
Filter Theatre's Water played in London at the Lyric Hammersmith and Tricycle Theatres, throughout the UK on tour, and at Sydney Theatre Company, Australia. It will be revived at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, USA, November 2013 as part of their Next Wave Festival.

As a co-production, Water is listed both with Filter Theatre and the Lyric Hammersmith. It was produced in association with the Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick.
