Exquisite Corpse Company's Water, Water, Everywhere…

Performances at 2 & 4:30 PM.

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. Four 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!

Over the course of 90 minutes, the audience experiences movement, songs, and installations. This site-specific piece challenges the audience to consider what is happening in our local water environment of New York City and how environmental crises can be felt at a personal level. ECC hopes to bring water environmental awareness to its audiences with a salty twist, of course!
