Everyone's A Critic - Review of Fire on the Water

Written by Yuko Kurahashi

Cleveland Public Theatre’s Fire on the Water is an amazing physical theatre piece in collaboration with Raymond Bobgan, and contributing playwrights. The Cuyahoga River had caught fire prior to 1969 but the incidents were repeatedly ignored. The 1969 fire caught the media’s attention and the community’s activism resulted in the Clean Water Act. The perfect piece as Ohio voters just passed the Lake Erie Bill of Rights. The dancers including aerial dancers dance, move, transform (into various objects), recite, and interact with the audience to underscore our relationship with water and our “crime” to damage and neglect it for the sake of immediate profit and convenience. Directed by Bobgan and India Nicole Burton. 3.1.2019
