Have you ever unexpectedly fallen into a pool, a lake, or the ocean? There are poignant moments that you experience as you fall, as you enter the water, and as you sort through the disorientation. You might panic, you might flail, or you may be completely level-headed as you try to get back to the air above. These moments feel drawn out, seemingly slowing to a crawl as your mind goes into high gear to cope with the crisis. Submerged explores these drawn out moments as we struggle and are ultimately overwhelmed by the power of the water. The show is written with a down ending representing floating away into the dark abyss.
This show is written mostly at a grade 5 level, although there are definitely some grade 6 challenged for the marimba players in the pit.
