The year is 1901. On the largest steamship in the world, a captive African Gray Elephant is bound for America. Mid-Atlantic, the boat encounters a massive blue whale. What happens next is a love story spanning species, time zones and many nautical miles. The performance will feature a live band and three performers who crank contraptions, pedal panoramic painting apparatuses, operate wild puppets and manipulate shadow sequences all while they sing shanty-like songs to weave this original and epic tale.
