carved acryllic glass, text, performance

Following the ancient rituals of bathing created for many occasions, from baptisms to weddings, this performance also wishes to cooperate with water in order to cleanse oneself, but also to help water in its natural process of cleansing itself.

The Healing Water Book in its physical form is a small book of poems carved in acrylic glass and written in a mix of Croatian/Czech/Greek/Spanish/English. Language is, like water, a fluid matter. Ideally, even more languages are to be mixed together in the song book.

Overall, these poems give thanks to the healing properties of water and kindly ask for the water to help in the healing process. They are meant to be sung in the flowing source of water, after which the performers bathe themselves in it.
