About the piece:
An average swedish person's daily waterfootprint is according to WWF 5890 litres.
The performance is playing with and reflecting on our unawareness around how much water we use daily in our modern societies, and were we take the water, and the fact that we in a way have lost control and that it is not any longer possible for one single human fo manage to carry the weight and perform the physical work that is necessary to provide the water used daily. And also that we are unaware of the water in our own bodies, we consist of 70 % water, water that maybe the dinosaurs has been drinking of. What we do to water we do to ourselves. The piece is also in the same time a tribute to all people carrying water on daily bases, and to the water itself and to the big natural cycle!
The piece starts with a speech by Catarina Rolfsdotter, journalist, author and moderator who worked with sustainability for over 25 years together with the percussionists! We thank SEA-U for lending us wet suits and Malmö Cultural Support for making this possible! Felicia Konrad and Johan Haugen will start to fill 589 10 litres buckets with 5890 litres of water from the sea. If one person would do this by itself it would take 10 hours without interruption if every bucket was filled for every 1 minute. So the task is overwhelming and overpowering, therefore we warmly welcome help by the ones who wants to participate and help us fill the buckets!
