“I can’t sleep. I’ve tried fluffing my pillow and counting sheep, drinking milk and singing a lullaby. But I just can’t find a way, no matter what I try.”
An insomniac, tossing and turning in her bed, is accompanied by a singing cellist and a strange presence as she searches for sleep through an endless night.
Using a potent mixture of live music, illusion, puppetry and quirky object manipulation, L’Insomnante takes you on a surreal journey through her night-time adventures.
A sister project, Dormez-vous? a specially devised multi-sensory experience for children on the autistic spectrum, will take place at two London schools in October 2014.
