Before the Sun and Moon is drawn from an ancient Korean folktale. It is a magical story, in which a husband and wife discover the power of love and devotion through many unexpected challenges and wild adventures. The show incorporates masks, puppets and other visual elements. In 1976 Ralph Lee became Artistic Director of the Mettawee River Theatre Company, which has been a center of his creative activity ever since. Mettawee’s productions are based on creation myths, trickster tales, Sufi stories, legends and folklore from the world’s many cultures. Ralph Lee received the 1996 Dance Theatre Workshop Bessie Award for “sustained achievement as a mask maker and theatre designer without equal.”
