Thaddeus Phillips creates a theatrical epic that connects worldwide telecommunications systems, humpback whales, Carl Sagan, and dinner at Applebee's. A modern Moby Dick adventure (with microphones instead of harpoons), this mythic tale follows a sound engineer who chases whale songs from New York to Columbia to Antarctica. Audiences sit on both sides of a stage the size of a humpback whale as objects float above and in front of them and sound swirls around and beneath them.

(Appropriate for ages 12 and up.)
