MD (or the whale) is an original dance/theater piece inspired by Herman Melville's classic novel Moby Dick. The performance directed by Witness Relocation's Dan Safer focuses on how mundane lives reveal their epic nature, and the epic nature of life on a whaling boat becomes utterly mundane when there is nothing to do (and no whales in sight) for months at a time at sea. I had the opportunity of working as assistant stage manager for this production.
