“And the Whale Said…” Moby Dick Puppet Show (2010)

“And the Whale Said…” is an interpretation of Moby Dick performed as a puppet show and told through the point of view of the whale in the cabin of Josh Beckman’s “Sea Nypmph,” a sunken ship installed at Machine Project, Los Angeles in 2010.  I used the first letter of each character’s name as a differentiating body shape and designed the puppets with a Russian Constructivist style in mind. The puppet show was subsequently performed at Mountain Bar in conjunction with The Loudest Voice and performed by Nicole Antebi, Linda Wei, Heather Parlato, and Shaoling Ma.
