  • Nocturne

    (Latvia / UK)

    Starting at dusk and ending at dawn, Nocturne is a journey into the wild side of the city and the creatures that reside there.

    As the sun sets and darkness forms audiences are invited to disappear into the underworld, slipping through the concrete and electricity, streetlights and supermarkets in search of something other. Within the shadows and undergrowth we are drawn a stranger and less familiar place where perspectives shift on our urban landscape.

    Created by an international team of artists, including collaborators set designer Ieva Kauliņa (Latvia) and choreographer Erik Eriksson (Sweden) and developed through conversations with night workers, ecologists and the local inhabitants of Deptford, Nocturne is a different kind of theatrical encounter. Part performance, part walk, part workshop, it is a song of the night and the creatures that inhabit it leading us across Deptford and New Cross in search of the edges of the city.
