NIGHT

By THE RABBLE

 

Night is not for slumber 

Night is when we can see the stars clearly 

Night is for ghosts  

Night is for signs  

Night is for the sublime and the miraculous. 

 

At the shimmering edge of the forest, we watch. The liminal point between life, death and the mists beyond. In the dark, faith cries out. From us, or from others? A slow procession, an ablution, a ritual to hear the whispers, a tree that speaks, a lake that bleeds, a hymn for mirrors. This is what we believe. This is our veneration.    

 

Using the structures of Dante’s Inferno, NIGHT is a new large-scale outdoor experience from feminist performance-makers, THE RABBLE made in collaboration with members of the Castlemaine community investigating the intersections between feminism and faith.
