Moonrise

'Moonrise is a woman's song of desire, invested with fierce and conflicting emotions. Drawing on ancient and modern mythology for its symolism, powers and logic, it acts as a parable for struggle. It is about dreams and dreaming, and about the impoverishment of the dreamless. It is the search for an anthropological dream that exists beyond a system of exchange and use.' - KM

'Moonrise is a dream-like fable juxtaposing images of air, fire and water with a hermaphrodite juggler and an infant mermaid' - John Wyver
