Treading Water

March 8, 2019

For the past decade RES’EAU-WaterNET and its partners have been engaging with a number of rural and Indigenous communities across Canada to address water challenges. 

Treading Water is an innovative play that brings to life some of the rich stories discovered during these community collaborations. The play flows between the intersecting narratives of characters in a community dealing with unsafe drinking water, and explores steps towards health and well-being related to water quality challenges. Water operators and their experiences are central in Treading Water, and the play illustrates their pivotal, yet complex, role in the community. Presented by engineers, water operators, and actors, the play aims to open conversations addressing water quality and health issues facing rural and Indigenous communities in the 21st Century.
