Be Like Water

Running Time: approximately 50 minutes Suitable for: 12+ “Have you ever wanted to be somebody else? I always wanted to be Bruce Lee. And sometimes, my dad. What determines who you are anyway? This is what I’m asking in my new theatre piece Be Like Water. For this production, to answer this question, I’ve learned some Chinese and Kung Fu from the movies. Expect a punchy duet, lots of text, interaction with video projection and some northern factory talk courtesy of my dad.” Following his acclaimed theatre debut TEN, visual artist Hetain Patel returns to the stage in collaboration with dancer Yuyu Rau and digital artist Barret Hodgson to question how we learn how to be.
