Zille Gellert

The Oracle's Boat (2009)

In an old assembly hall of Elsinore, new players have been gathered and prepared to play the game. Each of them bereft of their past, they battle day and night– grinding each other down to please the masters and guests of the spectacle. In the midst of it all, the remnant boat of Martha Rubin is placed. Humble servants claim to have carried it all the way from the Black Sea to the Norse coast. Now possessed with the divinity of the Goddess, the ritual games are blessed by the spirit of the oracle.
