About: Acqua Alta

In light of global warming and increasing sea levels, Noah has filled his floating zoo with two of every species so that he and his guests can relax and enjoy the wonders of the world's most exotic animals from the comfort of sea-faring luxury, every single animal in fact... well, apart from the Unicorns. Noah can't stand Unicorns.

Trapped in a sealed container in an unknown location, six unicorns find themselves without food, without water and with little air. Rejected from an attempted boarding of The Marshmallow they find their surroundings becoming increasingly moist and their future increasingly short.

Acqua Alta invites you on a journey through memory and reality. Inspired by music and told through rhythm, the story unfolds as these beautiful creatures become transfixed on the singular question that surrounds their fate.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Nonsuch Theatre is an international physical theatre company based in Nottingham.

Nonsuch Theatre are Freerange – not restricting themselves with artistic boundaries or formalities, instead they roam free, travel, they wander through artforms learning and sharing what they learn with the people around them.
