River, River by Merlinda Bobis
River, River is Filipina-Australian Merlinda Bobis'‚ latest performance work, based on her 1994 short story, Fish-Hair Woman, a story of magical realism, terror, and sadness.

Estrella Capili, the Fish-Hair Woman, uses her twelve-metre hair to trawl corpses from the river in Iraya, a militarised village in the Philippines. The river has become the dumping ground of victims of summary executions. Each time a body is thrown into the river, the water changes flavour: from river sweetness to brine, then later, to lemon grass. Is this myth? A trick of memory? An attempt of the village to story itself out of grief? Estrella remembers a night with no moon but lit by fireflies. She is taken by the soldiers to the river to retrieve a body from the water.
