Event description

Description

In Exquisite Corpse Company’s performative exhibition Water, Water, Everywhere...the lampshade remembers lullabies, and the teacup can tell you a secret. It is up to you to listen. Three overlapping storylines unfold in an immersive, interdisciplinary experience inspired by Governors Island’s history inside a historic house that was once a home. The show invites visitors to explore the exhumation of memory, what makes a home and how water connects us all.

Water Water Everywhere… is an intimate immersive experience that takes the audience on a whirlwind of time, space, and environment. In the multiple worlds of this play, ECC has recreated the past, reimagined the present, and hopes to find the future. The audience is split up into small groups, each experiencing the story with different characters from different times. You will meet twins from the 1800s, a family in both 1996 and 2019, and a girl from the future; and a questionable, house spirit who doesn’t live in any one particular time at all!

This show runs only on Saturday and Sunday from September 7 to October 27.

**This production takes place in a non-traditional venue. As per Governors Island, there is no running water and there are no restrooms in our immediate venue. Bathrooms on the island can be found near both the Manhattan & Brooklyn ferry terminals, along with various portable toilets all over the island. Additionally, please remember that is is early fall and temperatures can be high - we suggest that you dress accordingly and bring water. Please also note that audience will be asked to climb stairs, and, as such, the show is not handicap accessible.
