IT'S not quite a rain dance but a production coming to Riverside Theatres Parramatta will be based around a water theme.
Choreographer Dean Walsh is the mastermind of Prime Orderly.
The dance piece raises awareness about marine life.
Walsh said he had been intrigued by life under water from his scuba diving.
"When you dive you rely on tuning in with the environment," he said.
Walsh said there were social and political messages embedded in the production.
"Arts and science are reconveying to where they should be," he said.
"Scientists aren't the greatest communicators so they use the arts to help spread the message.
"There is a huge misunderstanding about the ocean because we are external species."
The creator described the performance as a "choreographic scoring system" made up of two parts.
There will also be a keynote speaker at each of the three Riverside Theatres shows.
"The first work is titled Anenemy and it looks at the predator and the perception of the predator," he said. "As soon as you see a shark everyone tends to get scared because it's such an unknown realm."
"The second piece is called Under Pressure.
"We loosely reflect on a situation that could happen during a dive."
The name of the show refers to a new beginning and the start of evolution.
