One Moon – A Human Wave of Connection

Celebrating our City’s diversity

What’s it about?

Artistic Director Jen Sumner was invited to choreograph One Moon, for the 2019 Derby Festé, a unique commission to celebrate the diversity of the city.

Over 500 people from across Derby gathered to create a human wave in a once in a life time event. Accompanied by movement, circus and beautiful music the spectacular human chain connected the Museum of the Moon at Derby Cathedral to the River Derwent through Cathedral Green.

One Moon reminds us that, no matter who we are and where we come from, we live together as human beings on one planet under one moon. We are all part of the unbreakable connection between the moon, tides and humanity.

“Such a great concept for a performance. I really enjoyed it. No better time than now to stop, lift our heads and connect with others on a human level”
