Cres­cent Moon Bear In this fu­sion of sto­ry­telling and mu­sic, Iris Curteis and Alice Jami­son ex­plore the Ja­panese folk­tale of the Cres­cent Moon Bear, the story of a woman who seeks to heal her hus­band by ven­tur­ing into the moun­tain wilds to find a spe­cial po­tion. With mu­sic from Ja­panese com­poser Toru Takemitsu, the per­for­mance aims to cre­ate a lis­ten­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that com­bines an­cient tales spo­ken aloud and evoca­tive con­tem­po­rary clas­si­cal mu­sic.
