How does a mule save his village from drought? Why are animals dancing on the riverbed? How did the ocean become salty? All these questions and more will be broached in this show where water plays a central role.


Water is not only present as a character, but as a musical universe. The spoken word blends with songs, the sound of an ocean drum, the rhythm of a flaoting gourd, the haunting melody of an aquatic kalimba, the call of a conch, the tinkling of bell anklets - evoking one after the other : the surf, dancing animals,flowing rivers...


During the show, the public participates actively in the spontaneous recording of the ocean and it's environment, and become themselves the creators of a tapestry of sound.  




                                        Excerpts of Water,Water Everywhere! are only in French, for the moment.









                                                    













This show is a tribute from an inveterate traveler to her adopted homeland : Occitania or the Oc country ofsouthern France.


Tales of initiation blend with tales of trees and sky, rivers and animals, spirits, mischief and magic...


The universal is reflected in these local tales.


Original compositions mingle with traditional songs in French and Occitanian.


"As Sharon Evans arrives on stage, we detect a subtle, undefinable accent...Imagine my surprise whn she starts speaking and singing in Occitanian ! Playing with words starting with "cat", we rediscover "Puss N' Boots". Her humor is subtle and never out of context as she introduces us to an intelligent, sensitive, mischievous cat - master of his destiny...Sudenly the story teller becomes the singer ; her expressions changes- she becomes radiant as we remain captivated to the last word..."
