Strawberry Moon in 4 Acts
A Moonstruck Series presented by The Arts Fission Company

Strawberry Moon in 4 Acts is Arts Fission’s annual Moonstruck Series that marks the celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The series features whimsical reimaging of the moon and fuels lunar fascination for audiences young and old. The title is inspired by the last full moon in June coined as the “Strawberry Moon” in reference to the strawberry season in early summer.

Dance in Surreal Lunarscape
Working with tech partner The Future Stage, the digital performance features Arts Fission dancers with pianist Shane Thio as the Astronaut in reverie and plays pieces by Gabriel Fauré (Clair de Lune, and Pavane) and Francis Poulenc (Mélancholie); and percussionist Cheong Kah Yiong appeared as the Jade Rabbit who conjures up strange images while striking hypnotic sounds on the yun-luo (16 tiny brass gongs mounted on the metal rack).

Combining Augmented Reality (AR) and choice-based options, Strawberry Moon comprises four modular narratives where viewers can freely enter in and out of each act. The four lunarscapes highlight the elements of water, sand, cloud, and wind with surreal characters in titles like Chang-E’s Mirror, Pavane on Moondust, Rabbit Dreaming, and Lunar Wind Chasers.

The iconic Singapore Flyer serves as the magical portal for viewers to “enter” into the world of the Strawberry Moon.
