Part-narrative and part-meditation, THIRST TRAP is a 30 min sound piece for audiences to listen to in the bath along with an experience pack of resources to change their physical environment, connecting closely with their personal atmosphere and relationship with their bodies.

THIRST TRAP delves into the possible outcomes of rising temperatures and the correlation between social and climate justice. A sister piece to their swimming pool performance experience BODIES, THIRST TRAP continues Young’s investigation into water as a key character in our collective conversations on climate justice.
