DAUGHTERS OF SUNSET (2020)

DARTMOOR AND EXMOOR, RULED BY QUEENS

Two moors, two queens, two men and two matriarchal societies that look to their Goddesses for forgiveness for the wrongs done ages ago.

In this enchanting tale, told through movement, drama and music, MED Theatre explored the possibility of matriarchy on Exmoor and Dartmoor and how the interruption of a stranger to normal life might impact the nurturing political landscape created by the two queens of the moors – Dart and Eske.
