Synopsis

Moon / woman / dark side / light side; lunacy is the effect of the moon. In under the moon ii: lunacy, Sexton's dance - at once aggressive and introverted, mocking and nonchalant, fragile and powerful, expresses a dialectic, core and surface, of women. The dance in the piece vies for space-time with the telling of an ancient Celtic myth. The Green Man runs. The Hero is initiated. The Hero looks a little like an American cowboy - or perhaps an Indian. Androgyny is a theme. Is it a story of the Green Man or an alchemical process? Does the dancer dance apart from the story or is she causing its events? Significant number series, Fibonacci spirals, are used to calculate the alteration of motion through space and time.
