Be Like Water
Hetain Patel presents a humorous and inventive exploration of cultural identity in this mixed-media show.
Be Like Water explores the diverse influences on Hetain Patel’s life so far, ranging from Bruce Lee and Spiderman to his father.
Following his acclaimed theatre debut TEN, which was part of ROH2’s ‘Firsts 2010’, Hetain Patel returns to the Linbury Studio Theatre in a collaboration with digital artist Barret Hodgson.
Be Like Water blends choreography, spoken word and modern media in an exploration of cultural identity and how it is formed. In Patel’s words: ‘Expect a duet, lots of text, interaction with video projections and some northern factory talk courtesy of my dad.’
Co-commissioned by ROH2, Dance4 and New Art Exchange, Nottingham
Development supported by Broadway Media Centre, Lakeside Arts Centre and Hatch, Nottingham, and South East Dance.
