Part adventure epic, part eco-cautionary tale, Everything Under the Moon, the latest and most ambitious creation by Toronto artist Shary Boyle and Winnipeg musician Christine Fellows, combines story, spectacle and song to work an essential magic, awakening us to the fragile wonder of the world.

Working with cellist Alex McMaster, percussionist Ed Reifel, and projection and puppeteering assistants Emma Letki and Amy Siegel, Boyle and Fellows have created a mesmerizing theatrical work that documents the survival quest of two seemingly insignificant creatures—Idared the honeybee and Limbertwig the little brown bat. Diminutive heroines notwithstanding, this is a work of tremendous scope. Everything Under the Moon is truly a tale of all creation, played out in a land of shadows and variable, transformative light.

Everything Under the Moon premiered in Toronto, Canada to rave reviews and sold-out audiences at Harbourfront’s Enwave Theatre in February, 2012. The performance was filmed and edited by Ryan J. Noth, with live sound recording by Paul Aucoin. It was nominated for a Dora Award for Outstanding Production (Theatre for Young Audiences Division, 2012).

Everything Under the Moon was created with support from Harbourfront’s Fresh Ground new works commissioning program, which champions the creation of exciting new interdisciplinary work geared toward children and adults alike. The production gratefully acknowledges the support of Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council and Six Shooter Records.
