Where Multimedia And Tragedy Meet In A Theatrical Event

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York, NY--October 23, 2006--The spirit and drive of producer/actor Emmitt Thrower allowed him to start his production company Wabi Sabi Productions.

In August 2001, Thrower had a brain stem stroke that left him unable to speak, eat, walk, stand up, or even sit up due to his affected balance. He was unable to see the world clearly any longer due to double vision. His life as a performer and involvement in the Arts seemed over. After his release from hospital in 2002, another setback hampered his efforts to regain his freedom, the loss of his vision in the left eye in addition to the restrictions of a wheelchair. From 2002 to the present, his endless hard work allowed him to eventually get up out of the wheelchair and stand up. By June 2006 he was finally be able to walk without aid. To say Emmit Thrower knows about adversity and fighting back is an understatement.

Life experiences such as this can change a man forever and it gave the visionary producer an idea to bring the tragedy of hurricane Katrina to an off Broadway production through dance, music, and modern day multi-media technologies. Katrina: A Whole Lotta Water makes its debut in New York City on November 9, 2006. The complex social issues spawned due to large-scale tragedies can carry over into outlying communities and the world at large in many different ways. This and more is the purpose of the onstage play. The modern twists that the event offers is sure to attract a very diverse audience that want to understand the underlying issues surrounding this tragic event that are still lingering and hanging over our heads today.
