Description Taking its inspiration from the life and work of Samuel R. Delaney and Marilyn Hacker, two of the boldest and most imaginative American writers of the 1960s, The Motion of Light in Water is a truly fantastic celebration of how we dream the future into being. Weaving music, language, movement and light, it takes the audience into thrilling imaginative territory.

In a world damaged by war and fearful of aliens, two embattled young beings – born in separate ghettos of a vibrant, violent city – find companionship in their shared struggle against the codes of gender, race and economic class.
