"...we are all embroiled in this mysterious
undertaking as one." - SUZY WRONG

What if water could speak?

Echoing imprints of those who have felt her passionless witness are tossed like driftwood onto the shore of the subliminal.

Collector of encounters, receptor of impressions, observer of worlds, she remains steadfast in her presence and provokes commentary on ferment, arrivals and departures.

A combination of physical theatre, poetics and recorded memories from Sydney communities, we, the lost company explores ‘Water’ and its metaphoric depths. Evoking the beach series of Brett Whiteley and myths of mother-nature's
most mysterious element, Clockfire Theatre embarks upon its
most ambitious atmospheric to date.
