Caught somewhere between contemporary choral music, physical theatre and art, ‘Moon’ is an original epic song of love. Characterisation comes not from soloists but from the group as a whole, with the storytelling aided by tasteful projected images. The piece contains staggeringly beautiful harmonies, cleverly executed a cappella techniques such as sound imitation and beat-boxing, and innovative forms of performance and singing which keep you on your toes. A little more audience engagement and facial expression might not have hurt, but this show is performed by a talented and slick group, and there is really nothing wrong with it at all, except that you may use up a lot of tissues if you get as emotional about such exquisite music, as I do.
