A queer sci-fi love story, The Motion of Light in Water celebrates the complicated, exhilarating journey of the human heart, as our imaginations soar through space and time.
Inspired by the life and work of Samuel Delaney and Marilyn Hacker, and powered by a crack ensemble of six extraordinary performers, this new performance weaves three interlinked stories into a theatrical fantasia of sound, light and space, exploring what it means – and what it might yet mean – to be human and to love.
Multi-award-winning Elbow Room have crafted a unique and touching affirmation of our power to imagine a better tomorrow.
