Emoto is a multi-media experimental theatre experience inspired by the book Water Knows the Answer, written by Japanese scientist Dr Masaru Emoto. This work-in-progress invites audiences to join local and Japanese artists – in a shallow pool – as they contemplate the meaning of life; and uses words, physical movement, puppets, dance, music and video projection to represent life’s endless possibilities.
