OF THE MOON
Thank you to everyone who has written us reviews, they have been so helpful! We are now looking into future projects that use dance to communicate historical and scientific research, watch this space for more information!
2 Sides of the Moon documented 500 years of womens' participation in King's Chapel through a five-act performance of dance, music and poetry, held in the Chapel and preceded by an open exhibition in the Audit Room
The performance looked into the shadows
of history; those parts left unexplored in stories written by and for the
literate and rich.

2 Sides of the Moon recognised, through the medium of dance, the work of known figures like Margaret Beaufort and Elizabeth I; but also of those working outside the limelight; including the cleaners, candlemakers, laundresses, ropemakers, events managers and stewards; of those with stories in the windows, like Ruth, the Queen of Sheba and Mary; and of those, like Virginia Woolf whose relationship to the chapel was as an outsider.
