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.
After wowing audiences during its Brisbane Festival 2021 world premiere and hailed by critics as ‘a new kind of storytelling’ (Limelight), Ishmael returns to Brisbane with a unique, visually compelling theatre experience reimagining the timeless novel, Moby Dick.
