In times past, there were ten suns in the sky. Each sun would take their turn to rise and set, until one day all ten suns leapt out together and ran wild…

In-between suns, moons, heaven and earth lives the story of 后羿 (Hou Yi) and 嫦娥 (Chang’e); two dreamers connected through time, and bound to our present. A story retold, and reimagined for millennia.

Guided by those who have travelled before, Moon Rabbit Rising embarks on a theatrical adventure through times past, dreams shared and worlds of boundless imagination. As we await the rising moon, what stories dance in the shadows?

The development of this work was supported through Shopfront Arts Co-op’s Open Shop program.

What is 25A? IT HAS BEEN MADE BY INDEPENDENT AND EMERGING ARTISTS. THEY HAVE PRODUCED AND MARKETED IT THEMSELVES. THEY GET 100% OF THE BOX OFFICE AND THE THEATRE FOR FREE. THEIR TASK IS TO MAKE A SHOW FOR LESS THAN $1500. THANKS FOR SUPPORTING THE ARTISTS OF THE FUTURE.
