In Shoot the Moon you catch glimpses of the love life of three different couples. Revolving walls covered in black-and-white wallpaper create three separate rooms, each containing its own love story. The door and windows to the other room seem to be simultaneously open and closed; accessible yet unattainable. New worlds beckon behind them, yet to they are always out of reach. Shoot the Moon is about the one thing that can create or change it: the emotions hidden inside our relationships.
Shoot the Moon won the VSCD dance prize, ‘the Swan for best dance production 2005-2006’. “Lightfoot León demonstrate how powerfully and subtly a good choreography and good dance can communicate”, wrote the VSCD dance jury when they gave the award to Paul Lightfoot and Sol León for this choreography.
