Singing Waters

Singing Waters

“Water is my greatest teacher”

Listen to the sound of water and stories emerge. This show is a powerful meditation of the element of water, from the first waters of the womb into the world of light, to turbulent waters, thunders, cyclones, storms, to the stillness of water on the sea, and the glassy light flickering waters of Hinekarohirohi representing the pathways we take in life.

Be transported and revived in this sensitive and powerful one-woman show with awe-inspiring performer WHAIA Sonic Weaver.

Whaia is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist who works with Taonga Puoro/First Nations instruments creating her own unique cradle of embedded healing phonics. She activates an ancient primordial voice that calls beyond the veil of this earthly world, and uses technology to activate water itself so that it speaks to us.

Singing Waters premiered at Northern Australian Festival of Arts in residence with Jasmine Blackman and Big Eye Theatre’s Mala Jina Jalbu Dancers, with creative cultural guidance from Aunty Rosalind Sailor.

It is in development in 2024/5 as a solo work.
