Oh the Moon! is a dance-theatre work conceived and choreographed by Catherine Marie Davalos. Through movement, image and spoken word, Oh the Moon! contemplates our lunar neighbor and its many universal and cultural associations. The Davalos Dance Company will perform an excerpt from the work, Moon Rising, which highlights the energy of the various phases of the moon. Movement metaphors and images, like “the cow jumped over the moon,” moon pies, “when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie”, serve as a moon commercial that is portrayed through movement and shadow puppetry.
