'The Light of the Water'
A new work for audiences of all ages about water.

'The light of the Water' by German choreographer Karola Luettringhaus and North Carolina musician Perry Smith is an interdisciplinary performance in dance, film, sculpture, costuming and creative music. Intriguing imagery, a massive sculpture made from 6,000 plastic water bottles, and original physicality merge with music played live on a variety of acoustic and home made water instruments.
The performance format gives audiences of all ages food for thought and opportunities for physical and vocal participation. Our focus audiences are ages 7-11, while adult audiences will be met intellectually as well.
'The Light of the Water' examines the many aspects of water, it's characteristics and meaning for our lives while addressing current-day concerns about water quality and availability.
'In a world where we can not drink our city water without worry, testing, or extracting man-made pollutants, I want to take another look at water, remind us of its beauty and necessity, while encouraging a sense of responsibility and inheritance in our youth', says Karola Luettringhaus. 'Let's go on a journey together and follow water around the globe, from droplet to ocean to deep sea creatures, from splashing, and bathing, to drinking and considerations for environmental stewardship.'
This new work is commissioned by UNCW Office of the Arts.
