Sydney Theatre presents A Filter and Lyric Hammersmith Co-production In association with Warwick Arts Centre Water Created by Filter and David Farr When one of Britain’s most innovative new theatre companies, Filter, joined forces with David Farr, the director who brought us Metamorphosis in 2009, and Radiohead’s Live Performance Designer, Andi Watson, the result was Water; a vastly ambitious, visually arresting theatrical experience. Spanning 26 years, two generations and two continents, Water masterfully weaves parallel personal narratives into one dreamlike whole. A British government negotiator battles to unite a G8 summit on a carbon emissions deal while her neglected boyfriend turns his attention to beating the world record for cave diving. Two estranged half-brothers reunite to commemorate their dead father but quickly become embroiled in a bitter tug-of-war over his scientific legacy. Intercutting these powerful individual stories, Water explores man’s desire to push himself to the limits in an increasingly unstable world and asks whether people’s inability to connect on a personal level could have potentially catastrophic repercussions on a global scale. Filter use visual and sonic storytelling techniques to create a show of cinematic scale. Domestic scenes interspersed with slow, majestic movement and music pieces, while video and sound are mixed live on stage to create theatre with thrillingly unique ‘live chemistry’.
