Imagine you are at house party. Music, people, loneliness. You are surrounded by short hellos and empty kindnesses. The only anchor seems to be the glass of water in your hand. Suddenly, this glass transforms into the way out, and a fantastic journey begins.

Minimal requirements

All I need to perform A Glass of Water is a stage with a PA system and lights. Blue light is important! No setup or breakdown. Just a short tech briefing, a quick light rehearsal and I’m ready to dive!

Maximum effect

It’s just me on stage with some lights and music, yet the audience is deeply immersed. With physical precision, I tell a story everyone can relate to immediately. The magic of modern mime!
