Through this visual adaptation of Moby dick students will explore the themes of this great American novel.
Moby Dick, by Herman Melville tells the tale of Captain Ahab and his maniacal pursuit of the ever-elusive white whale. In Concrete Temple’s The Whale, the often over-looked Sub-Sub-Librarian is featured, and it’s he who plays not only Ishmael and Captain Ahab but Moby Dick himself. Using only his body, voice, and an extraordinary collection of hand-crafted and rigged props to create life on a whale ship, Adinolfi, a dancer and actor by training, puts into service a variety of storytelling traditions. The effect of one man embodying this enormous literary epic in 60 minutes, using Melville’s text, is simultaneously playful and profound. The visual and physical nature of the work makes The Whale a unique theatrical experience.
Concrete Temple Theatre offers a variety of workshops to accompany our performances. Subjects covered can include performance skills, theatrical adaptation, puppet construction, and storytelling. The work students create will play as a prelude to our performance of Geppetto. Workshops can be tailored to your needs, ranging from an hour-long exploration to a week long intensive. Please inquire to specify desired content, length, and price.
