The moon observes and glides over the burning cities below, from the metropolises of Europe to those of Asia Minor, from Hiroshima to Halle, from Imperial China to Alabama. Her voice is mocking or amazed, indifferent or merciful, cold or incandescent. Her compassion knows no melancholy, no solace. „Great Cities under the Moon emerged by accident in 2000 from a barter between our theatre and a group of patients from a psychiatric hospital in Bielefeld, Germany. It was our intention to play this performance only once, but instead it became part of our repertoire. It describes with serenity scenes of exile, abuse and massacre from the History of our time, accompanied by songs of poets dear to us: Bertolt Brecht, Jens Bjørneboe, Ezra Pound, Li Po.” (Eugenio Barba)
