Water at Contact

Last few days to watch some of the most exciting theatre this year

Published on November 22nd 2007.

Water at Contact

Filter are billed as the most exciting physical theatre company to emerge in recent years. Water is a Filter production which is a visually extraordinary experience combining live music with a video mixed onstage. You probably won’t have seen anything like it.

With the strange but disturbing beauty of a dream Water cuts between powerful individual stories. In Canada, two half brothers clash over the legacy of their dead father, in Germany a young female special advisor tries to push through a political deal, whilst in Mexico a young Englishman prepares to dive the deepest freshwater cave in the world. As the stories intertwine you get gripping narrative, striking soundscapes and strong personal emotion.

Handsomely designed by Jon Bausor, Water also exposes the mechanics of performance. The composer and sound designer, Tim Phillips, shares the stage with the actors, who themselves shift pieces of the set or provide sound effects ranging from dripping water to a deep-sea dive.

Don’t miss it, you will find Water very refreshing.

The play runs until Saturday 24 November. Tickets are priced at £10 or £6. Confidential readers can click here to reserve tickets for £6 instead of £10.
