Brenda Varda: Liquid

Brenda Varda (UCR / Theater) Graduate Student

LIQUID, a 21st Century picaresque adventure through a melting world, is a large scale multimedia theatrical work, that examines both the sublime and insane responses to a (hopefully) alternate universe of global crisis. Through everything from Garbage Islands to Undersea Societies, the play – a collaboration between Brenda Varda (writer), Chris Covics (director), Perry Hoberman (video), Daniel Yasmin (music), Paul Bertin (sound) and Rachel

Lincoln (movement) – takes a fantastical journey of genetics, pirating, mer-people and ice caps to discover what remains when much has turned liquid.
