Some Must Watch While Some Must Sleep
In Development, 2018
Taken from a years worth of sleeptalk recordings, Some Must Watch While Some Must Sleep imagines what would happen if your ‘waking self’ and ‘sleeping self’ met, conversed, and maybe even healed.
A chamber work for two performers and an iPhone, the piece is inspired by TedTalks and seances, inviting you to contemplate the dreaming world through the verbatim transcripts of a sleeptalker.
Written and performed by Tanya Marquardt and Barra Levy-Mazie, in collaboration with Stephen O’Connell, Daniel Pettrow, Nicolas Norena, dramaturgy by DD Kugler, costume design by David B Smith, lighting design by Emma Rivera, sound design by Omar Zubair. Presented as part of the 2017 Mabou Mines Artist Residency, the show is currently in development.
