*This show has been cancelled* 

In light of the current situation we are saddened to announce that this show has been cancelled. 


We are asking all our audiences that if your show is cancelled that you consider using this opportunity to support local artists and the theatre by waiving a refund in light of a charitable donation to Theatre Deli Sheffield. However we absolutely understand if you are unable to so please send a refund request and we will process this for you.


Alternatively you can also donate straight to our crowdfunder here:  https://www.gofundme.com/f/play-your-role

It’s a scary time for small charities and businesses so we appreciate everyone’s support and hope this continues in the coming months. We’re looking at setting up gift cards that can be used at a later date.


Thank you for your understanding at this time and we all hope you're taking care of yourselves.

Stay safe- Theatre Deli Sheffield.


‘What really is the story of water?’ Water is Attracted to Water is about myths, about molecules, about memories. It’s about the stories we tell ourselves and our enduring love for H2O.

Two performers, a musician and a scientist come together to remember the floods, sing songs, tell stories and do the molecule dance.  We invite you into a world where stories can still be playful and celebratory, even as we struggle to confront difficult truths. We attempt to find a myth of water for the 21st century by drawing, dancing, singing and storytelling through all the possibilities, while Professor Miklas Scholz demonstrates one of his childhood experiments on stage.

Water is Attracted to Water takes its audience on a journey from the first water in the universe through to the most current scientific research on water. It asks, what is your first memory of water? How would you celebrate it?

About the Company:

Kate Adams makes theatre that welcomes the audience into imaginative non-fictional worlds which activate landscapes of human connection and emotions and heighten the everyday by combining figurative modes of expression like dance, music and stories with nonfictional material.

She is collaborating with Greek choreographer Medie Megas, artist and scenographer Maro Michalakakos, performers Alexia Beziki and Georgia Aliferi, UK musician Tom Le Cocq and German scientist and engineer Prof. Miklas Scholz.
