Description

A journey to get there – but if there is a whale blocking the way, the path must change. When a whale beaches on the London Underground, all hell breaks loose and communication abruptly ceases. One-woman's humorous and surreal trip through the unintelligible babble of London. An attempt at arrival to the better place, where the journey is the possibility of finding oneself and a sense of belonging against a backdrop of untranslatable words. This original script is based on interviews with people of different nationalities. A comical, poetical and political combination of movement with spoken word.

There She Is (***)
This physical theater piece begins with a Romanian immigrant standing in a London underground station when a whale suddenly appears on the tracks. She uses buses, hails taxis, rides ferries, and swims to try to reach the “better place,” but she has problems communicating with everyone. I imagine that the whale’s unintelligible vocalizations as a “fish” out of water was meant to be symbolic of the general theme of the communication problems of immigrants in the UK, but I didn’t realize that until now and have improved my impression of the piece.

This was the 44th most enjoyable of the 83 shows I have seen so far this year. You may see my other three-sentence reviews, in order from most enjoyable to worst, at my non-commercial website: www.fringefan.com.

I saw this last year and was puzzled at times by it. I think that there is a crisper and heartier performance here that took me along the way far better than before. I can get on board with the premise readily enough but found some of the narrative difficult...
