Visual poetry on the themes of solidarity, the environment and friendship. Observations and metaphor on our time on this world from 10 metres up through stilts, aerial dance and acrobatics.
In a dystopian universe, that could be ours, two wandering, irrevernet and thirsty souls come across the Water Guardian. This frowning and knock-kneed character will need to open up his heart if he is ever to recover his smile and the ability to dance. On the other hand, the wanderiers will need to control their disorderly and rude behaviour. All three need the water as much as they need to learn how to live.
In this story everything is on the move, waving or rolling sinuously as if aboard a ship at sea. The system, emotions and feelings are all like water. A subtle work on how to look after yourself, the world around you and to enjoy it in harmony.
