About this event

Dive in and immerse in an otherworldly sound experience. The water surface becomes a threshold between different musics and entirely different listening experiences. Underwater the sound is clear and immediate and as sound travels 4.5 times faster in water, it is perceived through your bones!

Underwater, aqueous performances await in the depths of sound and imagination.
Following a sold out award-winning run at Adelaide Fringe 2018.
