A site-specific movement performance takes inspiration from the Schiebekammer, delving into the rich tapestry of Viennese water history. This unique performance incorporates elements such as the soundscape, the art pieces within the space, and the profound knowledge encapsulated in the watery essence that surrounds us and resides within our very cells. Through this immersive experience, the performance aims to explore the multifaceted nature of water, encompassing not only its wishes, fears, and instances of abuse and misuse but also its remarkable capacity to connect and sustain life. These concepts are visually represented through the manipulation of a silvery fabric, symbolizing the search for the silver lining within our precarious future. While water commodification may not be explicitly addressed in this text, the exploration of water's power and significance in our lives serves to provoke contemplation and deepen our understanding of its intrinsic value.
