Mask music theatre on the high seas
With the dream of saving the world, a girl boards Captain Nemo's "Nautilus." However, the famous ship has long since become a museum. The aging crew does everything possible to make their retirement as enjoyable as possible. Attempts at communication lead to nothing, they get entangled in trivialities - but they are all in the same boat. Family Flöz weaves a poetic and absurdly comical story through silent play and musical fantasy language. Singers and an instrumental ensemble bring the mysterious world of the sea to life.
This is not a bow to Erik Satie, nor is it gimmickry, but rather a loving homage to one of the greats of musical humor.
