Chantry Dance presents extracts from The Imprisoned Moon


Lincolnshire is a county of marshy fen land, smooth fields, and the steep valleys of the rolling Wolds. It is also blessed with a rich heritage of intriguing folk stories and legends.

Using dance, circus and theatre to bring one of these wonderful tales to life, Chantry Dance presents extracts from their latest show in development, The Imprisoned Moon.

The Imprisoned Moon tells of the time the Moon came down from the sky to walk over the Lincolnshire Carrland. The soft light of her shining hair saved a lone traveller from falling into the marshy ground, which angered the Carr’s bogles who seized the poor Moon and held her captive. The traveller, guided by the light of a Will O’the Wisp, returned to the Carrland to rescue the Moon, so her light could forevermore keep the bogles at bay.

With stunning aerial hoop acrobatics and contemporary dance, Chantry Dance presents two extracts from this story. In the first, we see the Moon in the night sky, shining her light onto the sleeping earth below. In the second, the Will O’the Wisp leads the traveller to the Moon and they dance together, protected by her light.

Chantry will be presenting the full-length version of The Imprisoned Moon in early 2021, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy these extracts from one of our beloved county’s wonderful folktales.
