Description The Moondrunk is a piece of dance drama based on the vocal music composition by Arnold Schönberg called Pierrot Lunaire (1921). In its own time Pierrot Lunaire was unique; breaking all the conventional boundaries of a musical piece of work.
The Moondrunk goes through the night in the labyrinths of human mind, surging into various obsessions and passions. In the composition there meet the time of Pierrot Lunaire and the present time. Although the world seems to be totally changed, we can still see the actuality of the poem: What might be the essence of the Moondrunkness today?
Other Information The work had it's first premiere on October 27 1994.
