Three sisters gather together after many years apart. One of them is dying.

In this complex world, old patterns of behaviour play out, old wounds are re-exposed and ultimately, a new reality where three becomes two must be found.

Created in collaboration with internationally celebrated artist Kyoko Imazu, singer-songwriter Susannah Espie and Lemony S Puppet Theatre, Taking the Waters is a visually stunning, aching and humorous examination of the absurdity of life and death.

This new work from Lemony S Puppet Theatre combines live performance, sung voice, bunraku puppets and object theatre with stunning and multi-layered shadow scenes.
