AGUA, Vida y Tierra

Photography by Andrew Watkins

ABOUT

Agua, Vida y Tierra is a new bi-lingual documentary multi-media devised theatre piece about Puerto Rico and the history of America’s oldest colony.  Part epic poem, part searing historical drama, part celebration and part funeral liturgy, the audience is taken back and forth across time and space, never quite sure if what they are seeing is real or imagined.

This piece, which has been deeply cemented in Puerto Rican culture, will be a living testament of the power of art within tragedy. Part epic poem, part searing historical drama, part celebration and part funeral liturgy, the audience will be taken back and forth across time and space, never quite sure if what they are seeing is real or imagined.
