Moby Dick: Toward the Sea

An immersive performance combining music, text, ambient sounds and visual art.

Flutist Catherine Gregory and harpist Mélanie Genin embark on an immersive journey exploring Herman Melville’s epic tale through music and literary extracts, while combining multimedia elements, visuals and ambient noise.

The performance is preceded by the ‘Pre-show’, inviting the audience to enter Toward the Sea in an interactive and immersive way leading seamlessly to the continuous performance from beginning to end, with the performers entwining passages of the book with the music.

Musical works selected from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and the anchor piece, Takemitsu’s Toward the Sea, meditate on the themes of the sea, voyage and the rumination of the soul.

Together, the music and text convey Melville’s philosophical impact, focusing on the character’s psyche and the metaphysical questions he alludes to in the novel.
