Theatre Performance

A dead earth.
A climate refugee.
A voyage to the outer solar system.

On the resource-depleted earth of a not so distant future, a young climate refugee named Ishmael is given the chance to build a new life, provided she can survive a voyage to the outer solar system aboard the MV Pequod under the command of the obsessive Captain Ahab.

‘Moby Dick’ reimagined as a contemporary space saga, ‘Ishmael’ recasts earth’s no-longer-vast oceans with the immensity of the universe, and the endless possibilities and terrors it holds. In weaving the story to life, this boundary-pushing production melds live filmmaking with live-action, miniature sets, puppetry and an original score by indie-pop musician Bec Sandridge to tell a captivating story about individual hope and collective redemption.

Don’t miss the world premiere season of ‘Ishmael’ as part of Brisbane Festival.
