A state of reduced consciousness, in which the environment is perceived as in a dream. The unknown and uncertainty, that is, the knowledge of “what is coming,” makes us vulnerable and frightened. It’s okay if we are afraid, accepting vulnerability is a virtue that does not make it open to changes and everything that is happening around us.

I think you think I think about you when you think I think you think about me, and that’s so cool. And sometimes, I think I think you think about me while you think you think I think about you. Even that it’s so fucking cool.

MOONLIGHT is a choreographic project focused on poetic structures, a staged exploration of dispersed meanings, a malleable reality. This proposal rediscovers persistently established identities, unfolding and queering normativity. MOONLIGHT functions as a quick machinery of change and disruption.

MOONLIGHT plays with Disney heritage, dislocating its known dispositions and understandings.


A moon and its light.

Centrifugal disruption,

a punk symphony of the recognizable,

magickly maneuver.

MOONLIGHT is a dreaming filter,

bodies at risk.

The queering room, an intuitive architecture,

Aurora, Snow White and Prince Erik are part of it.

MOONLIGHT is initiated and developed by choreographers/dancers Aleksandar Georgiev (Ace) and Darío Barreto Damas. As an artistic partnership, they are interested in co-authorship creation within family constellations. They are busy with the facilitation of poetic spaces, triggering and stressing the questioning of alternatives lines of thinking. They operate around Stockholm, Skopje, Sofia and Tenerife.
