The Monkey Mother
The wind is blowing through the desert
over the thrusting mountains
over the freezing ocean
sunlight pierces the clouds
its warmth
streaming down to the earth
The wind continues onwards
passing tiny villages
hearing the rooster's melancholy crow at noon
the mother's tired lullabies
secret sorrow
swirls into the sky
swirling into Time
swirling into Night
The wind rushes onward
past the final graves
who is that who's crying
for the recently departed?
stay there! stay there!
wherever you are becomes your homeland
the sun has risen
the wind surges on...
not waiting...

The Monkey Mother continues Citymoon's exploration of new movement vocabularies - drawing upon contemporary performance practice, mime, voice, martial arts, (especially kung fu) and traditional Vietnamese performance styles to create an exciting and dynamic production that celebrates new directions and new expression in contemporary intercultural performance.
