Some Must Watch While Some Must Sleep

In Development at Earthdance, August 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, Patrick Bella Gone, costume design by David B Smith, lighting design by Masha Tsimring, sound design by Omar Zubair. Presented as part of the 2017 Mabou Mines Artist Residency, the show will be developed at Earthdance in August 2018.
