From The Stranger review: "Stokley Towles interviews people about the mundane facts of their lives, mixes all the details in a storytelling blender, and then makes shows telling you things you never even realized you should've been wondering about.
"Waterlines is about the rats in your toilets (they're really there), about the invention of near beer (as a safe alternative to drinking water, since the low alcohol content supposedly killed germs), and about a local man named Mel who has walked 90 percent of Seattle's sewer pipes (the things he's found there)."
The 45-minute performance is presented in an intimate studio setting.
Directions: Noodle Works is located at the edge of the International District in Seattle at 802 6th Avenue South (at the corner of Dearborn and kitty-corner to Uwajimaya's parking lot). It's in a red brick building that says "Won Hua Foods" on the north side. The entrance is on the west side of the building facing the Shell Gas Station. Look for "WATER" sign in the window.
Driving: Take the Dearborn exit off of I-5 and head west until you reach 6th Avenue South. Street parking is free on Sunday.
Bus: The International District/Chinatown Station (the end of the bus tunnel) is located a five minute walk from the studio.
Waterlines was commissioned by the Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs using Seattle Public Utilities 1% for Art Funds.
