Plan your visit

In a remote and tranquil land, an unusual community of adventurous animals and one wise old man live in harmony with nature. But suddenly one day, a flood overwhelms them.

In this crisis caused by climate change, the group undertakes a dangerous journey in a desperate quest for refuge and survival.

Performed with newly-created, long-string wood-carved marionettes and silhouette animation, this wordless play explores themes of displacement, exile, and the importance of solidarity and friendship in caring for our Earth and her living creatures.

Its atmospheric, original soundscore features exotic sound effects and rare percussive instruments.


Age guidance

A Water Journey is for everyone over 5. With a message about friendship and hope, the story deals with characters facing dangers and leaving their home. The show is wordless and the story is told through mime and movement. Younger children may not follow what is happening.
