2018: "Nachtreise"

A coproduction Collectif barbare / Festival Blickfelder Künste für ein junges Publikum


A quiet clinic in the greenery, an oasis of peace. No doctors or nursing staff. The young patients have long been left to their own devices. They have created their own world, with its rules and formulas. They no longer speak, the essential has long since been said and recorded. And now they use these recordings, make music with them, have fun with them. They tinker with it. Every night they get ready for sleep and the Winkelwiese villa turns into a curious laboratory of sleep and sound...strange noises come out of the bushes, sleepwalkers wander under the trees, a group of people try to put the flowers to sleep by singing softly, others have already packed their most beautiful memories long ago and are on their way to their dream world.

"Nachtreise" is a musical theater and installation in the building and gardens of the Villa Tobler.

concept: Astride Schlaefli
