Water in the Desert is proud to host two evenings of performance by Degenerate Art Ensemble and Mizu Desierto. This is an intimate event where the audience is immersed in movement, live music and dance.

When: Fri Sept 29 and Sat Sept 30, 8pm
Where: The Headwaters Theatre
Tickets: Sliding scale, $5 - $30PURCHASE

All proceeds go to the artists and to support the performance costs.

Please note that we have limited space, and tickets are required to reserve a spot.

Program for both evenings:

Mizu Desierto presents Matriarch, a dance and film meditation on death and dying, forgotten and future lineages, the andro-gene and bees. Sometimes only through the loss of the matriarch, can we realize that we must become our own queen.

Degenerate Art Ensemble presents Diphylleia Grayi (Skeleton Flower), a fantastical, semi-autobiographical exploration of a creative person’s struggle with depression, identity and and the awakening of feminine power where healing and transformation are fuelled by the secret medicine of fairy tales. The work is an immersive stage performance weaving together live music and song, visceral solo dance and storytelling ritual. Haruko Crow Nishimura and Joshua Kohl will perform the live music, dance and song elements in this rare, raw and intimate performance setting.
