Created by Hiawatha Project
Presented in partnership with The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust

Coming soon!
May 19 – 21 2022

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”


In “Buoyant Sea” babies and young children sing and splash together along with caregivers in a “water table play” about the joy of togetherness through all states of being.  Discover rainbows in the mist, sail down new rivers and when the world changes around us, like water, we can adapt, flow and float up again.  

In “Buoyant Sea” two performers journey with us through an immersive experience, exploring steamy jungles, adventuring down waterfalls, and examining the icey arctic through story, song, and participatory play.  The set is a larger water table that can accommodate 20 – 35 young children with more audience members seated around them. 

This play is currently in development with the creative team that brought you “My Traveling Song” including writer/director Anya Martin composer/lyricist Monica Stephenson.  

“Buoyant Sea” will be presented as a featured production at the 2023 EQT Children’s Theater Festival, May 19-21, 2023. The production will be presented alongside work from artists hailing from France, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Madagascar, Japan and the United States.
