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.
