Neal, Kate: Suite of works from "While you sleep" 

 

 

Basic information

 

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Exploring flight, escape, memory and dissociation, While You Sleep is both contrapuntal
    experiment and escape from the present. Embracing the elaborate complexity of the musical
    fugue – where a phrase is introduced by one instrument and then taken up by others – the
    work weaves gesture, design, light and immersive visuals. Hand-drawn animation, live action,
    video and stop-motion are choreographed alongside the musicians on the stage, a string
    quartet on wheely-chairs.
    Alluding to experiences that prompt the fugue state’s loss of self, While You Sleep dives into
    memory, uncertainty and our own delicate, repeated patterns of behaviour. Dark, subtle,
    surprising and moving, While You Sleep deftly probes the uncertain landscapes between grief
    and identity, reality and illusion.
    Animation by Sal Cooper.
