A classic of world literature as a vibrant spectacle
Eight men portray the gripping story about the famous hunt for the white whale. On a stage full of wind, water and bodies, director Antú Romero Nunes exercises his unrestrained and playful imagination. The production has been performed in Hamburg since 2013 and has become a classic in its own right. Two members of the direction of theatre, Antú Romero Nunes and Jörg Pohl, bring this seminal collaboration to Basel.
About the work
NEW! Digital bookstall
Together with our dramaturgy team, Basel’s arts centre Bider and Tanner has been curating the bookstall for our performances for many years. The wide range of books, CDs, DVDs, catalogues and even sheet music is now available 24/7 in the online shop. It’s worth taking a regular look.
Fully trained teachers take care of your children while you enjoy the performance. Book when purchasing your tickets, or at the latest two days before the performance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
