‘Body 115’ is a miniature epic, a tale of inner and outer journeys in explicit homage to Dante’s Divine Comedy. From the rain-washed, subterranean underworld of Kings Cross ‘Body 115’ – the long unidentified victim of the 1987 fire – becomes Virgil to Noble’s Dante. A rhapsodic paean to the trammelling ecstasy of loss. A trans-European odyssey turned safari of the soul
