Ship Songs

Ship Songs

SHIP SONGS traverses the symbolic connection between the sea, the human capacity for love and everyone's quest to reach the shore. alive with theatrical invention, this new solo play weaves together cutting edge animation, shipboard romances, epic tales and roguish folklore from the seven seas. With original seas shanties from award winning musician Don McGlashan ,SHIP SONGS is inspired by the true story of how Ian's mum met his dad following an amazing ocean-board adventure. SHIP SONGS enacts three narratives spanning several centuries- from the true story of Ian's mothers' fateful journey on the Manchester Progress in 1963; to a British convict ship sailing the waters off New Zealand in the late 1790's; to an Imperial treasure fleet under the command of the famous Chinese eunuch admiral Cheng Ho in 1405
