Moby Dick

May 17 - May 18


Moby Dick by Plexus Polaire (FR/NO) is a programme under Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) 2024.

It is the image of the ungraspable phantom of life; and this is the key to it all. ― Herman Melville, Moby Dick

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.

Drawing inspiration from her own family’s seafaring heritage, director Yngvild Aspeli and award-winning puppet theatre company Plexus Polaire craft a spectacular visual world on stage that brings Herman Melville’s classic tale to life. With a cast of seven actors, fifty intricately crafted puppets, live music and immersive video projections, this sensory feast of a production invites you to journey into the unfathomable depths of the ocean and Man’s perpetual battle with the forces of Nature.

Against a backdrop of maritime history, you’ll encounter the iconic white whale, Captain Ahab’s relentless pursuit, and the complex human emotions that drive Melville’s timeless epic. Miss at your own peril, this striking theatrical adaptation of Literature’s beast of a book.
