Night Light

Teater Refleksion and Andy Manley

The blackbird sings to welcome the night. The day slows and soon all are asleep.

All except one who cannot sleep.  A child, curious to know who looks after the night.

And so begins a magical journey through the dark and beautiful night until the blackbird sings again to welcome a new day.

Night Light is co-produced with Imaginate and Red Bridges Arts, commissioned through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund, Statens Kunstfond and Aarhus Kommune.


Quietly humorous and gentle, Night Light is a wonderfully imagined dream world. The entire team has created a cornucopia of wonder. ★★★★★
