“Gentle maidens walking in the garden
While they’re courted by the knights from the palace of love
They are all dressed in white with flowers of palest colour
They are all singing songs to the yellow moon above…
Come my pretty Oberon trip, trip, trip”
Two hours of dark and strange medieval style acid-folk from the 1960’s/1970’s; think otherworldly Pre-Raphaelite scenes depicting Arthurian myths & legends, courtly love,and medieval laments, viewed through a kaleidoscopic lens or Victorian ‘magic lantern’…

Curated by Melanie Xulu for MOOF
