Cirque du Soleil: One Night for One Drop

comment
Most Americans don't have to think about the water supply unless there's a drought or a flood. But for much of the world, going out to fetch water for the day is a fact of life. Cirque du Soleil teamed up with One Drop Foundation to create an awareness-raising performance piece about water issues. Cirque du Soleil: One Night for One Drop tells the story of six women who begin the day with a journey to find water, each in a different country. Above their heads floats an observer who comes from a water-rich world. As the observer watches on, the audience sees what life is like in nations where a drink of water doesn't come from a tap or twenty-ounce bottle. One Night for One Drop screens at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Wehrenberg Des Peres 14 Cine (12701 Manchester Road, Des Peres; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $12.50.
Wed., June 10, 7:30 p.m., 2015
