Moon On Earth

This short film by contemporary dance company Arts Fission draws inspiration from One Hundred Aspects Of The Moon, a series of woodblock prints by 19th-century Japanese artist Tsukioka Yoshitoshi.

It comprises nine micro-dance theatre solos by Aisha Polestico, Delia Tan and Wang Weiwei - as well as a guest appearance by acclaimed sculptor Han Sai Por, who plays a mysterious moon figure.

The production is led by the company's artistic director Angela Liong and directed by film-maker Nelson Yeo.
