A Breath Under Water

A mechanical spectacle about Water, the most imminent and yet intimate topic of our
times. Housed in and around the body of a life size and partially articulated whale sculpture.

A Breath Under Water, leads the audience into a sensory space, touching all facets
of water, from its poetry and mystic stories, its importance in daily life, until the very
topical issue of the impact of our behavior on the environment.

The project is now fully developed and in search of financing.

A Breath Under Water concept development with Nik Leuthold/CH and Claudius Bensch/D
Initiating force for the mobile art project: Marco Colabucci /I

Pre-production has led to collaboration with a multidisciplinary team and numerous
