The Distance of the Moon

The Distance of the Moon

Written by Italo Calvino
Adapted by Dave Mortensen
With new writing by Morag Shepherd
Choreographed by Breeanne Saxton

November 23 – December 22

Even when it’s really close, the journey requires a gravity-defying leap from a lone ladder on a small dish of a boat in the middle of the sea.

Find yourself suspended between two worlds this holiday season with Qfwfq and crew on a magical excursion to the moon and back.

A story of rowboats, lunar jellyfish, and the moon-madness of love.

This beautifully sad and joyously funny movement-driven delight will shine brightly in the memory of both old and young for years to come.
