Figures of Speech Theatre: The Distance of the Moon
Presented by Figures of Speech Theatre
with opening guest Plains

Tickets: $12 in advance / $15 at the door

The Distance of the Moon is a mixed media adaptation of Italo Calvino's classic short story. Shadows, puppetry, and actors combine with a sparse, hypnotic musical score to bring to life this surreal tale. Humorous and heartbreaking by turns, the performance explores the beautifully murky depths of pure, unrequited love.

"At one time the Moon was very close to the Earth. Then the tides gradually pushed her far away; the tides that the Moon herself causes in the Earth's waters, where the Earth slowly loses energy."                                                                                                                                                                ~ Sir George H. Darwin

"Climb up on the moon? Of course we did!"
~ Qwfwq
