Moby Dick

MOBY DICK

NYU Skirball
January 12-14 Run Time: 85 Minutes

Moby Dick
Created by Plexus Polaire
Directed by Yngvild Aspeli
Presented in association with NYU Skirball

An ancient white whale, a captain steering his ship into destruction, and the inner storms of the human heart. MOBY DICK is the tale of a whaling expedition, but also the story of an obsession or an investigation into the unexplained mysteries of life. To quote Melville: “It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all.” With seven actors, 50 puppets, video projections, a drowned orchestra, and a whale-sized whale, Yngvild Aspeli stages this visual adaptation of this wonderful beast of a book.

A stunning work of art

- The New York Times
Already critically acclaimed, Moby Dick (…) can hardly be described as anything more than a visual and atmospheric masterpiece of puppet theatre. Unusual synergies occur in the room.

- Scenekunst
The world tour premiere of Plexus Polaire's "Moby Dick" at Nordland Theater was unlike anything else I've seen, and a production that knocked me to the ground. It was a vision so accomplished, so beautiful and visual, so profound and so complete that I have trouble finding words.

- Amund Grimstad
