BLACK MOON explores our complex relationship to faith by utilizing an archaic sci-fi approach to storytelling and image-making. Moving between sinuous, seemingly boneless movement and sharp, accentuated angles, the dancers embody the duality of ease and desperation, antigravity and heaviness, broken and fluid.
