Lauren Cregor & Waterwell
Monica Bill Barnes
Robert Signom III
UPROARIOUS! Featuring a quartet of fearless performances, Off-Off-Broadway's a better place with Waterwell online. -Village Voice
A dizzying new music theater piece about the technological tools we use - and how they use us. Waterwell dives into a strange, bewildering world of digital immersion where the virtual is more real than reality.
Fusing harsh beats and bleak electronics with surging pop and sunny balladry, #9 is a swirling new music theatre piece about technology, identity and relationships. As innovations allow us to give and get information, share opinions and express our feelings in ways that were unimaginable even a few years ago, #9 confronts the question: how are the tools we create shaping the contours of our experience - transforming how we think and act?
NOTE: This production would not be made possible without the help and guidance of the ExchangeNYC & the Orchard Project.
HIGHLY AMUSING! Marshall McLuhan would probably have approved the message implicit in #9. -Theatremania
