WATER BOARD: a play about torture
This world premiere of the original play Water Board: a play about torture aims to create awareness and discussion about waterboarding as a form of torture.  Through live action performance, integrated video, original music and dialogue with the audience, this breathtaking show explores the contemporary politics and history of simulated drowning.  The play engages audience members in a conversation that struggles with what it means to live under a government that practices and condones torture.  The two performers will waterboard each other during the course of the show.   Exploring the eerily whimsical linguistic connotations of the recently coined term "waterboarding", performers play on slip 'n' slides and toss beach balls while singing about "enhanced interrogation techniques."
