Lunar State TAPAC

"Follow us to a different time, a different place." A scientist of the future, Cookie Sheila Levin is looking back to answer the age-old question: Why did the moon leave? Where did she go? 

Inspired by Italio Calvino’s “The Distance of the Moon”, Lunar State is a tale of a surreal world where the moon almost touches the sea. A young girl, called by the moon, is tasked with collecting and distributing the precious moon milk to her people, as a source of life and vitality. However, when the moon receives an unexpected visitor, the gentle balance of give and take is disrupted. Temptation and greed overcome the earth, and sucked dry, the moon vanishes from sight.

An achingly funny, fragile and poignant play about consumerism and listening to the planetary voice, Lunar State will catapult you through space and time, as Cookie Sheila Levin endeavours to find the truth behind the moon's disappearance.

Presented by the all-female team of Lunar Collaborative as a part of Auckland Fringe Festival 2020, this is a show not to be missed.
