Moonstruck

Poetry, prose and music about the moon. With texts by WB Yeats, Charles Baudelaire and Virginia Woolf read by Art Malik and Alexandra Gilbreath, plus music by Schumann and Debussy.

Art Malik and Alexandra Gilbreath read poetry and prose that explores our ancient and continuing fascination with the moon, in various guises: as a symbol of purity, as a capricious, changeable being, as an object to reach in the imagination and through scientific exploration. With texts by Ben Jonson, William Shakespeare, Charles Baudelaire, Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath, and music from Mendelssohn, Debussy, Schumann, Judy Garland, and Radiohead.
