“I think you think I think about you when you think I think you think about me, and that’s so cool.”

Moonlight is a choreographic project focused on poetic structures which function “as a quick machinery of change and disruption”. By playing around with Disney heritage, the performance offers a possibility to rediscover persistently established identities and to unfold normativity through queer practices. In this way Moonlight gradually studies the dispersing meanings of a changing reality, and becomes “a punk symphony of the recognizable”, which manages to overcome the viewers’ embarrassment with a magic wand.
