In this installment of the avant-garde, internationally-influential Station trilogy, travellers visit and drink, wash, fight, and love at a water station. No words are spoken in this work, but much is communicated in a space transformed by water, light, movement, and sound. We tease out meaning from subtle gesture and the interactions of the characters as their lives brush up against each other, and we glimpse our shared understanding and deeper connection to the living universe.

This production runs about 85 minutes.
