Ishmael

30 Aug – 11 Sept

Ishmael

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

World Premiere

A Dead Puppet Society production, written by David Morton

Ishmael is the latest work by the internationally acclaimed Dead Puppet Society who lend their trademark theatre magic to Herman Melville’s beloved classic, Moby Dick.

In this reimagined 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.

Melding live filmmaking with miniature sets, puppetry and music by Bec Sandridge, Xavier Dunn and Dave Jenkins Jnr, Ishmael tells a captivating story about individual hope and collective redemption.
