In the 'The Great Connection' we set out to create a small underwater musical/operetta dealing with the first encounter between the mythological creatures of the sea and the Information Superhighway. It is a loose reinterpretation of an old HC Andersen story where the ocean wildlife is wondering about a new telegraph cable appearing at the seabed. We reworked the material to be a more contemporary philosophical musing on human connection through mythology vs the digital communication age.


And the creatures asks themselves:

Is this the future? Or will the teeth of this thing cause nothing but tears? 

In future and past we are all connected...
