THE ARMS OF SLEEP
Norwich & Brighton | 2017 & 2018
An overnight sleepover in which people experienced a unique dream-like and immersive night of music and stories, sound and images
The Arms of Sleep, the third part of the Arms of Sleep trilogy, created an atmosphere where the audience spent the night surrounded by sound and shadows, balancing and drifting between sleep and wakefulness. Music was written by Jonathan Baker, Orlando Gough, Jon Hopkins and Helen Chadwick with atmospheric themed films and visuals from artist Sal Pittman.
Arms of Sleep took place at The Assembly House, Norwich,
as part of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival in 2017
and at Thirle Place, Brighton, as part of the Brighton Festival in 2018.
