a dance theatre performance for WATER
Agios Titos square, Saturday March 28th 2015, 21:00

According to the UN General Assembly in 2010: “The right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation constitutes a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights”.
However, more than one billion people, that is one in seven people on the planet, do not have access to safe drinking water.

“and we are all small islands of an aquatic planet”

Every day on this planet, approximately 2.000 children under the age of 5 die from diarrheal diseases and about 1.800 of these deaths are related to water and sanitation.

“and we are all small islands of an aquatic planet”

Every 22nd of March, World Water Day, we read, we get informed, we become aware, we are saddened by the statistics, we protest for the right to water, we proclaim that water is an unalienable public and eco good, essential for life, human society and ecosystems.

The dynamics of the course of events and of the whole situation shows anything but prudence. It rather shows contempt for all those “unquestionable” goods that for many people have stopped being unquestionable. Who would have expected that billions of creatures on this planet would be deprived of clean water and would bleed for a sip of “blue gold”? Who can believe that the next world war won’t be for gold, nor for oil or for food, but for water?
War for Water on the aquatic planet!

Water is privatized; it becomes a marketable commodity and is priced while the water stocks decrease globally. The only winners will be the large multinational corporations. We all become scapegoats for their own profit.

Really, for what profit we are talking about, now that our lives are in danger? We forget that the amount of water on the planet is fixed, doesn’t increase and is only recycled? We forget that pollution makes its renewal frighteningly difficult?

The primary and most precious good, the source of life, the most important component of the human organism and generally, of all the animal and plant kingdom, deity in the mythology of all cultures with its inner healing power, bound to the history of mankind and the life on Earth itself, Water, is threatened from all sides. No living being on this planet can live without it.

Water is here before us, since always, it has a life and memory, changes shape and form, flows, creates ecosystems, even from nowhere! It’s inside and outside us, everywhere, but not forever!

“and I’m afraid that soon, in our times, the only liquid element that I won’t pay for, will be my tears and their saltiness, which will be chasing every time I silenced and every pillage that occurred and I stayed indifferent…”
