Water: A Dispatch From the Bottom of the Tub is a tale of water from polluted waterways to the bottom of the ocean, to the inside of our bellies, the bathtub and beyond. Featuring shadow puppetry, stop-motion animation and song by Rae Red and Hedia.

Rae Red (Rae Anna Hample) is a multi-media artist, based out of Marfa, TX. She combines personal narrative, with environmental justice, shadow puppetry, animation, & live singing to create jubilant performances. Her work is playfully macabre, and often explores what it means to transform.

Hedia is the music of multi-instrumentalist Bryce Hample, of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Hedia is spacial music, creating a place to inhabit, if only temporarily. Musical spaces to encompass the listener, unfolding organically and spaciously, in a blanket of drifting piano chords, viola da gamba, cello, brass, subdued guitar, and tape manipulations.
