The Water Project: THIRST draws from bodily systems governed by water and the larger planetary body of earth and the world around us. In this project, thirst is used as a metaphor for knowledge, freedom, peace, need, the insatiate – and the pitted hunger of greed. Thirst happens when water is not flowing – metaphorically, when flow no longer exists. The Water Project: THIRST considers both these dimensions, thinking about the flow of water as a source for movement and thinking about flow/no flow as a metaphor, as poetry. As dancers, investigating the science of fluids and their inherent dynamics through bodily systems are combined with the poetics of metaphor and meaning.
