Water Get Ready to Be Wet!
Presented by the VORTEX Repertory Company
Part of The Elementals series that Bonnie Cullum has been crafting with VORTEX Repertory Company for several years (AIR and FIRE). For the month of September, VORTEX artists flood the stage with a pool of water and a shimmering waterfall. The actors dance through water -- relishing life force, swimming the depths,honoring Water in many forms, and engaging the audience in a visceral journey of cleansing, healing, and heart. Devised in collaboration with the ensemble and designers and funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, WATER teams Cullum with long-time collaborator Toni Bravo to create a show unlike anything ever seen at The VORTEX.
WATER features a stellar cast of ShapeShifters: Andy Agne, Anderson Dear, Rebecca Goldstein, Gabriel Maldonado, Chelsea Manasseri, Emerald Mystiek, Minerva Villa, and Joanna Wright.
Conceived and Directed by Bonnie Cullum. Choreography by Toni Bravo. Original Music by Chad Salvata. Scenic Design by Ann Marie Gordon. Lighting Design by Jason Amato. Costume Design by Talena Martinez. Stage Management by Tamara L. Farley. Production photography by Kimberley Mead.
WATER is funded and supported in part by an award from the National
Endowment for the Arts, by a grant from the Texas Commission on
the Arts and the City of Austin through the Cultural Arts Division
