H2O

First Performance February 2004

An Olympic sized swimming pool is the stage as H2O transforms from ocean to desert, glaciers to salt pan and bush fires.

It was the final race of the school’s annual swimming carnival and everyone was having fun except Peta. Unable to swim, she felt like a fish out of water at the swimming pools. Her grandmother had once promised to teach her, but now the dam has dried up and her granny is no longer around.

If only it would rain!

Join Peta as her watery dreams unfold through large-scale puppetry, object theatre, inflatables, shadows, dance, digital imagery, scuba, flying dresses, fire, music and song.
