A woman discovers the unexpected in her basement when she investigates why her water has run dry. In a funny and surreal journey into the deep, dancer Lisa Porter explores a mysterious underground world populated by friendly plumbers and a beautiful siren, played by acclaimed soprano Meredith Hall, who beckons her to come “just a little further” on this Faustian quest.
George Morgan’s haunting and evocative musical score brings a rich sensuality to the piece. Directed by John Doyle, this oddly hilarious short combines music and dance for a luscious take on one of our most basic technologies. Everyone needs a plumber now and then.
