Between Earth and Moon
Summerhall - The Old Lab
Between Earth and Moon is a Scottish-Argentinian collaboration, inspired by Italo Calvino's surrealist story Distance of the Moon. It is a storytelling piece exploring loneliness, nostalgia, connection and human relationships. This intimate piece will be performed simultaneously in Argentina and Scotland. The moon is very far away, and so are we… Ayla and Teo went to the moon together, but Ayla came back alone. When the moon is full, Ayla watches to catch a glimpse of Teo. Captivated and tormented by the sight of her beloved, so far away, out of reach, she must use what means are within her power to grasp the threads of the relationship and bring it back to Earth. Longing turns to frustration and confusion as Ayla tries to connect with Teo. Their relationship comes in and out of focus, sometimes magical, sometimes impossible. A Scottish-Argentinian collaboration, Between Earth and Moon is a storytelling piece exploring loneliness, nostalgia, connection and human relationships. This intimate piece will be performed simultaneously in Argentina and Scotland and will make use of live-streaming to link performers across two continents. Supported by the SURGE Bursary Programme.
