    Tortoise in a Nutshell in co-production with Teater Katapult in association with Macrobert Arts Centre

    Amidst a vast ocean, a tiny boat is tossed through rolling waves and thundering storms. Rowing forward is a fisherman, sailing to nowhere with all his worldly possessions. He looks out at the darkness and prepares to leap…

    But instead something jumps in. This uninvited guest is a capricious talking fish, breaking through the surface to discover what lies above. 

    Fisk combines immersive soundscapes, captivating visuals and puppetry to create a poignant moving story about a man and a fish. / @tortoiseinanut
