Watermark

Beneath the day-to-day life of every community lie imprints of people’s histories; dreams that they once held, stories they once told. Like a faint watermark on a beautiful piece of paper, they resound with meaning and mystery. These imprints of the past can produce visions of new futures, empowering people to rebuild their lives. Queenstown has been through severe difficulties and it is through the vision of theatre and the power of music that local people can express their determination to reconstruct their town.

Drawn together by nationally renowned theatre director Neil Cameron and a team of professional actors and musicians, Watermark is a poignant Romeo and Juliet style love story  Two young teenagers struggle to deal with a threat to their community. To save their homes and families in the future, they must learn from the experiences of the past.  Starring students from the local schools, Big Monkey Theatre Company and members of the Queenstown community, Watermark will use music, songs, stories and strong visual images to bring together the peoples’ fighting spirit.
