“It seems that there’s an elephant roaming around, as big as the world dreams and woes. Yet no one in the room seems to care”.
“The Grand Journey” uses as a starting point the novel “The Elephant’s Journey” by José Saramago, which tells the tale of a wedding gift from King John III to Archduke Maximilian and it’s journey from Lisbon to Vienna. The extravagant gift, an elephant named Solomon will embark upon a series of adventures as it crosses an entire continent and is witness to the climate of intolerance and division that ran rampant in Europe after the protestant Schism. This troubled Europe, so distant from our time and yet so our own, becomes the backdrop for an unlikely tale of friendship in a language suitable for all ages.
