Sorry – this event has already happened!
This spectacular Italian production brings Captain Ahab’s ship and his obsessive search for revenge, to a new GDIF destination in the City of London. With ingenious staging, theatre, dance, circus and music, this timely reinvention of Melville’s classic novel explores themes of migration and the fear of the unknown.
Guildhall Yard is a 5 minute walk from Bank tube station. Volunteers wearing GDIF t-shirts with large yellow ‘Assisted Route’ signs will lead an assisted route to the performance – meet outside Bank station. If you need assistance in finding our volunteers, please email email@example.com in advance so we know to expect you. The performance site has level access throughout.
