The Playground NZ's Sleep/Wake

Art and science meet to investigate the worlds of the sleeping body. Sleep/Wake is the result of a collaboration between sleep scientist Philippa Gander and performance designer Sam Trubridge. The dynamic set forms an integral part of each performance: moving walls, projections, somnographic machinery, liquids seeping across the stage, and the play of light in the space are all live performances that are synthesised with the movements of the performers. Through the languages of movement, image, and science a unique journey begins: into the unknown territory of sleep, where we spend one third of our lives.
