Performed in schools, prisons, community centres, beaches and streets throughout the Western Cape.

Over 16 000 people saw the production over an eight week period.

An Outdoor Theatre production in the style of the clown, dealing with water as a precious resource. Five clowns arrive in a space looking for water with a windmill and a tank and a shower. There is drought and flood and drought again and waste and fierce competition for the last drop of water. And a woman that searches for water for her family and always arrives as the tap runs dry. A story told through physical comedy and image without an identifiable verbal text.

“We are more than grateful for what you have done for our community. Our students have enjoyed it, it was educational … you did something wonderful. You are wonderful people. May you keep up the good work.”
Maureen Makoetlane, Vusisizwe Secondary, Worcester.

“The group’s performance was excellent… it also served as a stress release to some of us. We hope that you will come and perform for our inmates again.”
Mrs. Dyimani, Head: Female Prison, Pollsmoor.

“… thank you very much for a super show and for the contribution you are making in uplifting and furthering the broadening of our children’s knowledge.”
Jennifer Williams, Panorama Primary, Vredenburg.
