AMPLE MOON

Nothing will stop me from eating the moon...
The hungry fish was munching the moon's reflection on the pond.
I eat and eat, but it won't run out.
Damn, how ample it is! Yum yum.
Mumbling in the pond, the fish munched the reflection of the moon.
(Nomura Yoshiya)

Simo Heiskanen's choreography Ample Moon takes the audience under a moonlit night sky. Heiskanen describes his absurd and humorous work of art like this:

"New Age crackpot Miss Moon's magic tricks bring forth a group of human characters who are freaked out by the moon. On the surface of the moon, there is an uncertainty about the future, and in the deep waters the seahorses drift into a relationship crisis. At sea, Mister Flounder devours the moon's reflection and wonders why it never runs out."

The music was composed by Graham Fitkin and Fred Hersch, among others.
