Event Details

High Water is a performance in the 2020 PuSh International Performing Arts Festival. By Macromatter, presented with Vancouver International Children’s Festival.

In this playful, resourceful performance, one solitary soul uses consumer products to build entire worlds inside a fish tank, working on the spot against a rising horizon of water. Rockets, cityscapes, satellites and more are created from the interaction of aqua and everyday objects; audiences may never look at clothespins, CDs or turkey basters the same way again. The tank works as an H2O hourglass: as it steadily, inexorably fills, spectators witness an abundance of transformation and destruction, much of which has an eerily familiar feel to it…

Small in scale but vast in its implications, High Water is a testament to human creativity as well as a shrewd commentary on its dangers. Comedic, suspenseful and beautifully executed, it’s a work that asks for our concentration and rewards it amply—the colour, the choreography and the sheer poetry are a thrill for children and adults alike.
