Description A gripping tale of the extremity of passion explodes onto the stage as The Navigator premieres for Brisbane Festival 2008. The Navigator evokes stories from the great Indian epic The Mahabharata and the romance of Tristan und Isolde, in its telling of how people risk everything in journeying towards unity and/or transformation, questioning the contingency of living only one life in one world.
