“Liquid State” is a dance performance depicting the water crisis throughout the world as global
corporations continue to make record profits selling bottled water.
“Sales of the leading bottled still water brands in the United States in 2016 (in million U.S.
dollars): Private Label ($2,310.88), Dasani ($1,072.97) and Aquafina ($1,044.64).” - Statista
“For nearly two weeks, the Syrian capital and its vicinity have been afflicted by a water crisis
that has left taps dry, caused long lines at wells and forced people to stretch whatever thin
resources they can find.”- New York Times
These alarming sentiments have inspired LVDC's work, Liquid State; it depicted the
juxtaposition of these global issues.
