We will inhabit a night time space together, working at intervals both indoors and outwards through the sleeping city.
‘All-nighter’ will be a workshop that takes the frame of the nocturnal city. Beginning at dusk, we will share food and begin movement and somatic explorations that prepare us to navigate the city as darkness falls. Working with practices of drifting, witnessing and the collecting of found materials, we will then return to the space to work and share.
We will sleep at intervals and wake to experience the different phases of darkness during the night time, working both with materials assembled in the space and outdoors on micro expeditions through the vicinity. We will orientate to the darkness through the adapted senses; working with movement and touch, proprioception, hearing and emergent night vision.
This workshop introduces physical practices and scores that invite a tender and liminal engagement with the night time, urban wildlife, our selves and each other. For the duration we will proceed without electrical light, using available light and candles to navigate the night time.
