Derek McPhatter, Water Riot in Beta, 2022.

Theater-maker and writer Derek McPhatter gives a sneak preview of Water Riot in Beta: a music-theater work that follows a troupe of water rights activists as they seek hope in a world transformed by global water crisis, unbridled network technologies, and resurgent fascism. 

McPhatter envisions Water Riot in Beta as the anchor piece of his NightQueen performance suite—his Creative Capital Project.
