Insomnia is a movement based performance piece that explores the relationship between sleep and restlessness.
It is inspired by the secrets hidden in darkness, the only time when we are in a state of unknowing. When we sleep we are unaware of ourselves and our surroundings. Even those who suffer from insomnia often experience a warped perspective of consciousness which is clouded by exhaustion and frustration.
The performance will capture the unconscious moments of body twitches, tosses and turns, and restless fits that many people experience in the late hours of the night.
Insomnia is an Illuminate The Night Open Call Project funded by Winnipeg Arts Council.
