12 FULL MOONS

In collaboration with Barnaby Festival, I’ve just completed the first stage of ‘Our Future is Ancient’. Since the winter solstice in December 2019, during each full moon cycle, I’ve left Manchester and journeyed into the forest before dawn, staying until after first light.

It’s inspired by a recent dawn visit I made to Angel Meadow during the time of lockdown in the Coronavirus crisis, and I felt compelled to spend time in this ancient place, the site of inspiration for Not Quite Light in 2015.
