‘Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not just fish they are after’ – Henry David Thoreau

Amidst a vast, cascading expanse of ocean, a tiny boat is tossed through rolling waves and thundering storms, a speck amidst the immense turbulent seas. Steadily rowing forward into the nothingness is a fisherman, driven by despair, sailing to nowhere with all his worldly possessions. He looks out as the darkness looms and prepares himself to leap…


But before he can jump out, something else jumps in. Fisk is a story of a man and a fish, and the unexpected impact they have upon one another.


Weaving together a rich tapestry of puppetry, movement and intricate design, alongside an evocative original soundtrack, the piece draws audiences into an immersive marine world. Examining themes of depression, support and interconnection, Fisk is an exploration of the lengths we can go to in order to escape from ourselves, yet also finds joy in even the deepest and darkest of depths.


Fisk is a new international co-production between Teater Katapult and Scottish award-winning theatre company, Tortoise in a Nutshell.
