Precious Drop

 

An evening length dance, music, & multi-media production

 Precious Drop illuminates our exceedingly variant human relationships to water. Overseen by the omnipotent, pan-cultural water spirit, Mami Wata, a unified tale is revealed, woven of ‘traditional’ African fable and current event that explores this intrinsic and invaluable resource throughout place and time. By way of experiences both mundane and sacred, the journey probes a spectrum of inquiries between abundance and scarcity, reverence and disregard, solution and destruction. In gratitude and celebration for Her bountiful gifts, direction is forged towards a more promising future.
