LIVE / Shary Boyle and Christine Fellows: Everything Under the Moon
Everything Under the Moon is the old-time shadow play re-imagined; a fantastical work of theatre for all ages told through projected image and narrative song. This new interdisciplinary performance work is created by Toronto-based visual and performance artist Shary Boyle and Winnipeg-based songwriter and performer Christine Fellows.
Using multiple overhead projectors to bring Boyle’s hand-animated artwork to life, and an original score by Fellows performed on xylophone, vibraphone, keyboard, ukulele, cello, percussion, and voice, Everything Under the Moon follows two small, winged creatures as they set out together on an urgent quest to save themselves and their species. Everything Under the Moon tells the story of Limbertwig and Ida Red, a little brown bat and a honeybee, who have found themselves alone and frightened after strange illnesses have taken over their communities. Joining forces, the two embark on a perilous, adventurepacked journey that takes them far from their homes.
Join us after the premiere on Saturday, 18 February for an opening party copresented with World Stage. Then on Thursday, 23 February, stay after the closing performance for an onstage talkshow interview between Shary Boyle, Christine Fellows and Assistant Curator Jon Davies about Everything Under the Moon.
