Choreographer Rebecca French and her collaborators are reportedly set to explore "the dynamic depths and transcendent nature of water." (Believe us, it's going to be much, much wilder than it sounds!) Some 14 dancers perform in Quench as glamorous mermaids, lovely water sprites, bathing beauties and aquatic gods. Using water as a symbol of life,
French and company dive into the deep end of the pool with live music by Spike the Percussionist, costumes and site-specific dance film by Ashley Horn and lighting by Frank Vela. Expect funny and serious presentations of invented mythology and new legends, some silliness and some profound truths. And most of all, expect to get wet.
Quench runs at 8 p.m. August 22, 23, 25, 28, 29 and 30. Frenetic Theater, 5102 Navigation. For information, call 713-447-7624 or visit freneticore.net. $16 to $25.
