Aquavoltaic

AquaVoltaic is a commentary on the commercial use and abuse of water, and a satire of globalisation and popular media.   After buying a consignment of water from a shady Nigerian in Sierra Leone, quixotic Afro-Caribbean ‘businessman’ John Jay-Jay Joseph attempts to smuggle his booty through London and Essex to Outback Australia, where he intends to sell it to a mysterious Aboriginal tribe with magical realist ambitions. But when Jay-Jay’s bizarre plans go awry, the transaction between him and the other ‘ethnics’ unravels a darkly comic tale that raises questions about racial stereotyping, global trade, and the mutating qualities of H2O.
