When the Moon Spun Round features a playful mix of contemporary aerial dance and traditional music played out by tricksters in the moonlight.

It was the cats who noticed it first; the moon had spun round. And with a great and mischievous smile, the moon asked for a new dance for all.

Come on an imaginative journey of joyful movement, where a fiddler soars high, and cloths made from the night and light and half-light suspend, float and fall. Let the dance, dance you!
