The Water Thief is an interdisciplinary performance project conceived by Sean Frey and Amy Siegel, that layers film, live performance, music and projection art. This “living film” is set in an abandoned East Coast town, where Charon maintains a clepsydra (trans. ‘water thief’), a giant clock run by water. Over three nights, he is visited by a whale and spirits from his past. On the ﬁnal night, Charon enters the whale and is completely immersed in the vivid and wild world of the afterlife.
Performing at SummerWorks Festival, August 2014.
Funded by The Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council.
