THE MOTH PROJECT
An extraordinary multimedia experience that invites audiences to experience the parallel journey of moths and humans.
Join us at the Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg, for a production that seamlessly weaves together music, visual art, and storytelling to illuminate the connections between our world and that of moths.
MUSIC – From Bach to Joni Mitchell to KISS to original songs, the music reflects the incredible diversity of the moth species and explores the common themes between us and them – migration, seduction, death, transformation, and hope.
PICTURES – Through a visually stunning tour of macro photography, slow-motion video, and dynamic motion graphics, moths appear larger than life, towering over two musicians and engulfing them in their world.
WORDS – By weaving science, Western and Indigenous mythologies, and personal stories of one family’s journey from post-war Europe to North America, THE MOTH PROJECT explores the multiple ways we connect to our ecosystem.
