In this Education Exchange Project, an intercultural team of 9 theater-creating students from Frankfurt and Palma de Mallorca explored the topic of Water/Agua/Wasser in a collaborative rehearsal process.
Water is life. Water is danger. Water is shortage and abundance in one - two opposites with which humanity has always struggled, but which are dramatically intensified by the climate catastrophe.
But what does this duality mean for us humans? What stories emerge from it, and what might drift towards us only in the unconscious depths?
Scientific facts meet vague myths, deep sea monsters flirt with sirens, personal stories and real threats meet fictional worlds and poetic images.
The result is an evening about the most diverse aspects of the fundamental element that is water. Like the sea, this evening is variable and captivating, beautiful and terrifying, deep and full of small waves that carry you from one moment to the next.
