Fisk

About Fisk

“Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not just fish they’re after” – Henry David Thoreau

Amidst a vast, cascading expanse of ocean, a tiny boat is tossed through rolling waves and thundering storms, a speck amidst the immense turbulent seas. Steadily rowing forward into the nothingness is a fisherman, driven by despair, sailing to nowhere with all his worldly possessions. He looks out as the darkness looms and prepares himself to leap…

But before he can jump out, something else jumps in; a mass of colour thrashing about the tiny boat. This uninvited guest has finally broken through the surface to discover what lies above. Fisk is a story of a man and a fish, and the unexpected impact they have upon one another.

Weaving together a rich tapestry of puppetry, movement and intricate design, alongside an evocative original soundtrack, the piece draws audiences into an immersive marine world. Examining themes of depression, dependence and desolation. Fisk, is an exploration of the lengths we can go to in order to escape from ourselves, yet also finds joy in even the deepest and darkest depths.

Recommended for ages 14 and above.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fisk are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
