A theater-dance piece that tells the story of Cod. From the perspective of the fisherman and society to that of cod itself, the viewer is led to explore the historical, cultural and environmental impact of fishing and the consumption of this fish on humanity and the world. Between dream and reality we travel from the high seas to the depths of the oceans.
Acts of Cod is a multidisciplinary play, in which theatre, dance, mime, puppets, video and music constitute its main means of expression.
