Working in an empty wading pool our dance reminds us that water is essential to our health and well being at all stages of our lives. Juxtaposing the simple pleasure of playing in a pool with images of uncertainty and loss we hope to instill a sense of gratitude for what we have and a desire to assist water fragile communities throughout Canada around the world.
