An Eastern moon myth warns children: “Never point at the moon or your ears will be cut off!” Inspired by this warning, the piece follows a young boy, the moon, and the fateful gesture that brings them together. Told in the spirit of a surreal cautionary tale for adults, this image-driven work combines a puppet, projections, recorded sound, and a live actor. Theater collides with visual art and elements of dance to explore what happens when we encounter the inevitable.
