About the event

Confluence is a show about water and how it connects all of us – from the origins of life forms on Earth to the crisis of Human Migration and Movement.

We are all made of water. We are all connected by water. There are millions of human beings in migration at this very moment from what they once called home – who they were – to where they will eventually call home – to who they will become.

The play follows an 8-year-old boy named DJ who is both a teacher to those he encounters and the embodiment of the innocent and naive child encountering the world as it is and learning of it. Dj’s story runs parallel with that of Gryph, a man who is wandering the realm of consciousness – as he converses with a mysterious voice and is guided on a journey along the Colorado River, into Urban spaces and beyond discovering the ecosystem that supports the entire Southwest.

During these travels, he encounters profound individual and collective experiences through the lens of human history written on the walls of ancient mesozoic sandstone.

Concurrently – scene-by-scene – DJ’s reality and the inner workings of Gryph’s wanderings occur side-by-side until both these worlds collide at the Colorado River.

Confluence is essentially a story of Human Movement. Of coming together to flow like the river. To understand the importance of water and how it connects all of us.

To become the water that we are.
