Matrix Theatre: Ghost Waters
Matrix Theatre Company (Mexicantown) - 2730 Bagley Street

Sponsored by: Matrix Theatre Company

Performances, music, puppet workshops, food, and fun family activities will all focus on water consciousness.

A ghost water is any body of water that was buried in the name of human progress. Many of Detroit’s waterways were used as sewers and eventually buried, but hidden rivers still flow beneath the city. The project examines Detroit’s water history, its current water problems and their impact on the future. Ghost Waters aims to serve as a vehicle to foster a renewed sense of place in Detroit’s ecosystems. The importance of recycling, water-consciousness, sustainability, and the right of every human being to have access to clean, running water are some of the topics Ghost Waters will connect to, artistically and through community engagement.
