The Water Project

The Water Project is excited to announce the premiere performances on October 1 – 3, 2021 in Mayer Theatre at Santa Clara University.  After a year of Covid-19 we are extremely grateful to present our long overdue performance. All current precautions will be observed. We invite you to join us for this exciting show.

To register for free tickets to all The Water Project events go to:

All audience members for the performances and the talk (see below) will need to have proof of Covid-19 vaccination and be masked. Register through the SCU Presents website listed above. 

Our Kickstarter is now live again for our upcoming October premiere.

With one week to go we have reached our baseline goal. Thank you to everyone who contributed! Since we set that original goal new production expenses have emerged such the cost of creating and printing our program. Any extra funds will go toward paying our performers and support team a little extra than the bottom line fee for which they agreed. Your contribution now will help to brighten these young artist’s day. Our deadline is Sept. 27, 2021 and any contribution is much appreciated.

Stay healthy everyone!

The Water Project is a multi-media performance work scheduled for premiere at Santa Clara University in October of 2021. Reaching across disciplines, the collaborative creative team is composed of faculty members from the Music, Art & Art History, Theatre and Dance departments as well as consulting faculty from the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department Environmental Studies and Science. Additionally, we are creating a network of partnering community organizations to turn environmental inspiration into climate change action.

A sneak peak into The Water Project

The Water Project’s Opening piece is a celebration of water – its beauty, diversity of forms – streams, waves, oceans. The visual movement and music reflect the tempo and energy. The rises and falls of water are echoed in the imagery.

Pulling from global and local sources such as the I-Ching and a 1921 Santa Clara Valley Report on Water Conservation, The Water Project’s Wells piece explores the relationship between human beings and water resources.
