- In-person event
THE MOTH PROJECT invites you on a parallel journey of moths and humans.
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, 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 story of one family’s journey from post-war Europe to North America, THE MOTH PROJECT explores the multiple ways we connect to our ecosystem.
