The Water Station

A chamber piece that speaks in the rich language of silence to the neglected part of the soul

A world where time slows down and where a look or gesture must suffice in ‘speaking’ complex stories of daily life. In Ota Shogo’s non-verbal masterpiece, a series of travellers encounter a broken tap of running water, and sometimes each other, in the course of their journeys. According to Ota, “There are words here…you just can’t hear them.”
