This play was created by UNESCO-IHP and UN-Water in the framework of the International Year of Water Cooperation 2013. It is a theatrical representation of the world's surreal, and as yet, unsolved dilemmas surrounding water security, water governance and water cooperation.
This 4-act play on trusting each other, sharing commons, and ultimately deciding if we are capable of perpetuating our development without endangering the planet was video taped.
Maggie White and Lesha Witmer played the Butterflies, appearing in act 3. They conveyed the messages of the Butterfly Effect in a different setting.
“The Theatre of the Absurd” is now online at the Water Channel: video
There is also a short trailer (just like in the movies!) for a behind-the-scenes look - now available at the UNESCO YouTube Channel
