WAVES by Alice Mary Cooper

Waves is the tale of Elizabeth Moncello and how, growing up on Gabo Island (Australia) in the 1930s, by emulating fish, penguins and dolphins to learn how to swim, she came to be the unofficial inventor of the butterfly stroke.

Combining storytelling, movement and splashes of humour, Waves is about having the courage, desire, and determination to swim against the tide of expectation. An extraordinary tale of a life fully lived.
