Tickets for NOQTURNL by John Connell & Florence To Berlin
NOQTURNL by John Connell & Florence To
Noqturnl is an overnight performance exploring the threshold between waking and dreaming. In collaboration with MONOM Berlin and the Spatial Sound Institute, creators To and Connell immerse participants in a spatial field of sound and light designed to open access to the hyperlucid: the imaginative and highly receptive state of intelligence available within the dreaming mind.
A counterbalance to our increasingly dysfunctional and disingenuous information environments, the hyperlucid remains one of the last remaining spaces in which we can intuitively decipher the symbolism within external narratives and their impact on the psyche and reflect on new directions and possibilities, both psychologically and socially. Working with MONOM’s 4DSOUND system, Noqturnl plays with the boundaries of our depth and proximity perception, inviting participants to uncover alternative spatial realities and their potential for conscious awareness.
Limited to 70 people, Noqturnl is a durational performance lasting seven hours.
Beds and blankets are provided, warm clothing and sleeping bags are recommended for comfort.
To avoid disturbing the other guests, entrance is not permitted after the event commences and no reentry is possible during the night.
A shared breakfast will be provided in the space after first light.NOQTURNL art director Florence To and composer John Connell share a deep interest in the way technology and media can alter perception affecting the formation of our personal and social constructs, both positively and adversely. They have been collaborating with spatial sound collective 4DSOUND since 2014 to explore how spatial audiovisual technologies can encourage constructive environments for self reflection, creative ideation and social interaction.
