Taken from a years worth of sleeptalk recordings, Some Must Watch While Some Must Sleep imagines what would happen if your ‘waking self’ and ‘sleeping self’ met, conversed, and maybe even healed. A chamber work for two performers and an iPhone, the piece is inspired by TedTalks and seances, inviting you to contemplate the dreaming world through the verbatim transcripts of a sleeptalker.
Some Must Watch While Some Must Sleep is written and performed by Tanya Marquardt and Barra Levy-Mazie, in collaboration with Stephen O’Connell, and Nicolas Norena, with dramaturgy by DD Kugler, lighting design by Emma Rivera, and sound design by Omar Zubair. Presented as part of the 2017 Mabou Mines Artist Residency.
