A lighthouse keeper discovers the logbook of a lonely sailor. After reading the final pages, which evoke as much mystery as they do desperation, he decides to set off in search of the sailor’s sinking ship. This moment marks the beginning of an extraordinary journey that will take him to lands he once thought were beyond his wildest imagination.
Drawing on the tradition of the carnival arts and shadow theatre, this story is told by three musicians and three performers. Their stage is a small travelling theatre installed in the public space, which lights up at nightfall. Poetic and dreamlike, the combination of shadow theatre, voice and music takes the audience on a journey of discovery through a fabulous universe that invites us to think about our world and to imagine the myriad of ways we can construct it.
