Waiting for the Sun
En hel natt på Black Box teater /​ A night at Black Box teater

3. november 2017

Waiting for the Sun is an all-night experience, a durational event

that explores voices and sound landscapes, through a constellation of immersive and dreamlike works. The night is composed of shows, radio shows, sound installations, talks, readings and films.

While most of our season program is dedicated to the presentation of individual shows, we also wish to propose other formats, with different modes of agencies. Through 12 hours, Waiting for the sun gathers artists working with various mediums in a common venue (Black Box teater as a whole), intended as a space for experiences, encounters, possible resonances and interferences.

Waiting for the Sun is an invitation to a moment and a space where time is suspended, where aesthetic experience and theoretical contents are combined, where we are available to what we hear, where the withdrawal of prominent images generate another sense of awareness and sensitivity.
It is an invitation to feel the time dissolving softly and to enter refracted landscapes. And maybe it will open up for specific states of attention and perception. And maybe it will allow specific rooms of imagination, for producing images, for being with oneself together with others.

Waiting for the Sun is a journey into the beauty of the unstable.
