"WATER BOARD: a play about torture" aims to create awareness and discussion
about waterboarding as a form of torture. Through live
action performance, integrated video, original music and dialogue with the
audience, this breathtaking show explores the contemporary
politics and history of simulated drowning.

Performers Nadeem Mazen and Stephanie Skier each waterboard the other during
the course of the performance.

Exploring the eerily whimsical linguistic connotations of the recently
coined term ?waterboarding?, the performers play on slip?n?slides and toss
beach balls while singing about ?enhanced interrogation
techniques."
