Like A Moth To The Light takes as a starting point the behaviour of moths and translates this, through sound, movement and light, into a staged work of mesmerising musical lepidoptery. The interplay between music and lighting is enhanced by the pianist’s insect-like attire and partnered by a detailed choreography of movements and stage settings, as marked in the musical score. Like A Moth To The Light promises a live piano experience which goes beyond the ordinary and expected.
