Rhine trip

Two salmon swim in the Rhine to spawn upstream in Switzerland. We are going on an adventure, a harsh journey of hundreds of kilometres. We sail past the Water Drop Ballet, which dances the river's history, and hear the Talking Stones, which only appear at ominous low tide. We continue our route past the largest waterfall in Europe and encounter Lorelei, the angry mermaid who knows how to enchant boaters with her beautiful singing. Will the two salmon ever reach the origin of the Rhine?

This story shows the beauty of nature. But at the same time, the lowering water level is bringing to the surface the disastrous consequences of climate change, overfishing, and pollution. This causes a swirling tide in which romance and reality compete for glory. Three players sing, dance and perform everything: the salmon, the river, villages, cities, legends, residents, tourists, gods, nymphs, boats, stones, animals, factories, a waterfall and the sea. All this with as little existing language as possible, but sung in sounds and universal words everyone understands.

In Rhine Journey by multi-talented and Mary Dresselhuys Prize winner Steef de Jong, everything passes by in a moving painting.
