THE DEEPEST DEPTHS OF MY SOUL FROZEN WATER
FROM THE VERY FIRST SNOWFLAKE I HAVE LONGED
FOR WARMTH, FIRE, FLAME, THE BLAZE
FROM THE VERY START I HAVE WAITED FOR LATER
‘The Titanic is unsinkable, sinking unthinkable’. So they said, 100 years ago. Since then these words have gradually become a metaphor for the iceberg that slowly but surely melts. In Boat & Berg, the third joint production by Josse De Pauw and Peter Vermeersch, we hear the story of the iceberg that is so much looking forward to seeing the ship that it embraces it when it finally arrives. They are reunited at the bottom of the sea.
