BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

“Man takes this whole universe for a vast practical joke.”

Ishmael loses faith in civilisation and voyages to oceans deep to hunt the elusive white whale. But once the killing starts, he comprehends the scale of man’s misdeeds. Melville’s novel is transformed into a multimedia mock-fable that celebrates and decries the human spirit in equal measure.

Following their critically acclaimed productions of
Dante’s Divine Comedy and The Fatal Eggs, So it Goes Theatre bring Moby Dick to life with immersive video design, dynamic choreography and contemporary sea-shanties.

So it Goes are a New Diorama Emerging Company (2019-20). They are a small troupe with big ideas. Their work rebuilds and modernises classic texts with untethered fun and invention.
