Water Wars in West Hartford:

Sonia Plumb Dance Company Presents

Water Wars on September 21 and 22 and the University of St. Joseph

West Harford CT (June 12, 2012) – After thrilling audiences for a decade throughout the Northeast, the Sonia Plumb Dance Company is back after a 10-year hiatus to present a preview of the Company’s newest performance, Water Wars, at the University of St. Joseph, West Hartford, Ct. on September 21 and 22, 2012 at 7:30pm. Tickets range from $20 for the general public to $5 for students in advance or $25 and $10 the week of.

Water Wars explores our very human relationship to water both spiritually and physically,” said Sonia Plumb, artistic director and choreographer. “When a family is displaced from their home as the result of drought or a flood, the upheaval is intense, raw and devastating. The Company’s dancers in Water Wars will take us on a physical journey through these emotionally-charged issues.”

Water Wars exemplifies the Sonia Plumb Dance Company’s long-time commitment to social responsibility and education outreach to the community. “Water touches all aspects of our lives every day, which is something that many people don’t think about until it’s difficult to obtain.” said Plumb. “Water Wars was developed to encourage dialogue around a core environmental issue that impacts all us, our children and future generations. Water is becoming scarce in many parts of the world and even in our own backyard as the result of pollution, overuse and climate change. What is our moral responsibility to water conservation? Where do we draw the line between environment and economics?”

Following the performance, join Plumb and water conservation experts through a conversation about the dance and local water issues.
