Night Light

About the light and magic of the night
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, The Danish Arts Foundation and The Municipality of Aarhus.
