NIGHTWATCH

brut im alten Kino Sandleiten
Performance Urban performance TV series new creation
{everyday fictions} {soapification} {the end of sleep}

In May and June, the performance TV collective irreality.tv will shoot a participatory science-fiction series for TV. NIGHTWATCH is set in a world that could be ours: a 24/7 rhythm rules everyday life. Nights are bereft of darkness and sleep is first optimised, then banned altogether. Hardly anyone dares to dream. And yet, there is some resistance against this regime of sleeplessness. A sleepeasy opens in Ottakring, a secret place where people meet for collective sleeping. Hope for a blackout is alive.

Based on Jonathan Crary’s essay 24/7: Late Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep, the series confronts the present with the parallel reality of a sleepless world. What happens in this world and what twists the plot of the series takes will be decided together with all participants during shooting. There will be no script. Between documentation and fictionalisation, irreality.tv employs the strategy of soapification. The scenario of a sleepless world is above all meant to be a call to imagine – and live while shooting – a fictitious everyday life in one’s own life. Everybody is welcome to join! Those interested are invited to register at info@irreality.tv or to simply show up at irreality.tv’s production office during shooting. Following an initial shooting period in May with interventions at various places throughout Vienna, the NIGHTWATCH sleepeasy will open in June as part of the SOHO in Ottakring festival. The world premiere of the series will then take place at brut in the autumn of 2018.

irreality.tv is a platform for site-specific and participatory TV projects. Its series are created in collaboration with people on location; everybody is welcome to join. Projects are centred around the question: What should or could happen if life was a TV show? Last season, irreality.tv realised another series, DER RING DES NIBELUNGENVIERTELS, in co-production with brut.

The Big Black-Out
Both film shooting and intervention in the city space at the same time, irreality.tv’s big series finale will hopefully involve a complete black-out in Sandleiten. Are we going to succeed in dimming out the city and turning off all TV sets, neon signs and street lamps? And then, what are we going to do under the screen of night darkness? No registration required. Meeting point: Altes Kino Sandleiten, Liebknechtgasse 32, 1160 Wien. Further information
