What if you turned on the faucet and nothing came out? Too much, too little, ensuring enough and just not taking water for granted, are troubling themes under consideration as Ptero Dance Theatre unveils choreographer Paula Present's latest, H2~Eau. Like the musical Cabaret, the inherent pleasures of a nightclub are utilized to consider darker subjects while moving the action among different performance spaces throughout the venue. The endeavor gains from filmed images by Paul Linkogle and live music from Ariel Blumenthal supporting dancers Molly Brictson, Sarandon Cassidy Vincent, Kelly Gill, Briana Masson, Jacqueline Nii, Robyn O'Dell, and Eva Wieland.
