Synopsis

Sunset. A girl waits for the moon singing and playing her instruments to create the harmony of the night. When the music grows, the moon grows. When the music becomes dark, the moon goes out. An owl and a wolf accompany this sweet movement of the moon’s swaying. Dark night. No moon.

No moon is a reflection on universal harmony and balance through music. The lunar phases represent allegorically the cycle of life.

We claim the moonless moment as beautiful and necessary. Darkness symbolises introspection, reflection and calm. What emotion invades us when we are in this fragile moment of the No moon?

A show without text where music is the language to communicate the feelings and emotions that guide us on this evocative journey. isual delicacy and live music. An ideal opportunity to delve into the beauty and magic of the night.

No moon it achieves what it sets out to do: to show, on the one hand, the fragility of the human being in moments of no moon (of no light, of darkness), but to demonstrate, at the same time, that everything is cyclical, like the moon, the four phases of which are unique and special”.

Aina Font

“And today, school matinees. The children are spectators of some of these great premieres.
The latest proposal from the veteran Samfaina de Colors brings us No moon. A delicate and evocative journey where the moon lights up or darkens and the music creates the harmony of the night”.
TV3. TN Comarques. 07/10/22.

Núria Bacardit

“Mirna Vilasís, alone on the stage, opts for the visual and is oblivious to the fantastic technical proposal and the careful melodies. Tender journey of howls, owls, lights, and shadows”.
Martí Rossell. Twitter. 07/10/22.

Martí Rossell

“To happen a space open to imagination, creativity and interpretation. A small musical and scenic jewel, a journey through sounds and a great protagonist: the moon. The intimate staging seeks and quickly finds that complicity, empathy and above all, the collaboration of the small spectator”.
Diari Regio 7. Manresa. 08/10/22.

Assumpta Pérez
“This little gem was premiered at the recent Fira Mediterrània in Manresa, to great public acclaim”.
Diari de Terrassa. 10/10/22.
Mercè Boladeras

“Vilasís is like a little girl who likes to share and reveal all the magic tricks, to captivate children. She certainly succeeds”.
