MOON ON EARTH 《照无眠》is a short dance film inspired by the woodblock series One Hundred Aspects of the Moon (月百姿 1892) by the last of the Ukiyo-E master, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi. This contemporary dance reverie also marks the muted mood of a pandemic affected Mid-Autumn Festival in 2021.
The dance film features 9 dramatic female characters in 9 micro-dance theatre solos by three new dance-makers: Aisha Polestico, Delia Tan and Wang Weiwei. They navigated and explored the sense of loneliness and isolation in their choreographic research that served to inform their own views of female psyche throughout times.
Special mention of one eminent guest performer by Cultural Medallion recipient, sculptor Han Sai Por, who plays the mysterious Moon Figure in the film.
