WE:SLEEP

Sleep is an uncompromising interruption of the theft of time from us by capitalism.
– Jonathan Crary

Is sleep the best form of meditation, as the Dalai Lama says? At the end of the year, around the time of the longest night on 21/12, we are bringing together artists and thinkers who reflect on the theme of sleep. David Weber-Krebs and Patrícia Portela research the powerful potential of sleeping – in an age in which we might as well be awake 24 hours a day. Nathalie Pattyn gives a lecture on the effects of light on sleep. The Monastery is coming to the Kaaistudios for a second day, with rituals that have been adapted to the winter. And Valentine Kempynck questions how meaningful hibernation may be for us today.

There are no future productions planned for WE:SLEEP
