There will be four matinees across three Saturdays in August so book now and know that you’re doing a little bit extra to support action on climate change. In 2012, 50 per cent of matinee seats were awarded free to those who could prove they had arrived by environmentally sustainable means, be that cycling, walking or taking public transport.

WATER, Created by Filter and David Farr

13 - 22 September, 2012

Sydney Theatre presents
A Filter and Lyric Hammersmith Co-production
In association with Warwick Arts Centre
WATER
Created by Filter and David Farr

When one of Britain's most innovative new theatre companies, Filter, joined forces with David Farr, the director who brought us Metamorphosis in 2009, and Radiohead's Live Performance Designer, Andi Watson, the result was Water; a vastly ambitious, visually arresting theatrical experience. Spanning 26 years, two generations and two continents, Water masterfully weaves parallel personal narratives into one dreamlike whole. A British government negotiator battles to unite a G8 summit on a carbon emissions deal while her neglected boyfriend turns his attention to beating the world record for cave diving. Two estranged half-brothers reunite to commemorate their dead father but quickly become embroiled in a bitter tug-of-war over his scientific legacy. Intercutting these powerful individual stories, Water explores man's desire to push himself to the limits in an increasingly unstable world and asks whether people's inability to connect on a personal level could have potentially catastrophic repercussions on a global scale. Filter use visual and sonic storytelling techniques to create a show of cinematic scale. Domestic scenes interspersed with slow, majestic movement and music pieces, while video and sound are mixed live on stage to create theatre with thrillingly unique 'live chemistry'. Recommended for ages 14+. Duration: 1 hour 25 minutes, no interval.

We have 2 double passes to give away to the opening night of this fabulous performance on Thursday 13 September. Just email us in 25 words or less telling us why you think people need to better connect with each other to help solve our planet’s problems, to competitions@gmagazine.com.au before midday Wednesday 12 September.
