FAQ

This is a very special edition of the series which runs ALL NIGHT LONG at elastic arts. Does that sound daunting to you? Here are a few FAQ’s to (hopefully) ease your mind:

 

1. Do I have to stay all night long?
No! Stay for as long or short as you like. Coming for an hour or so at any point is completely allowed, as well as staying all night.

 

2. Is there really sleeping involved?
Ideally, yes! Much of the art is made to be experienced while coming in and out of sleep

 

3. Should I bring my own blankets and pillows and stuff?
If you want! We will provide some in the spacebar feel free to deck out your sleep spot as much as you want.

 

4. Do I have to do anything?
No, your sleepy presence is all that’s required, everything else is voluntary.

 

5. what’s the point?
We think that experiencing art in different ways enhances our experience of it, and of the world. We are curious how sleepiness and sleep could create a new and exciting experience of this art, and hope you do too!


About the We Series:
We each have an affect on the rooms we enter. With our presence we bring our personal experience and hidden motivations. We encounter others who bring the same. And in this ecology we can develop a common purpose that amplifies, refracts, upsets, or transcends the notions we brought in with us. Just by being together we are making meaning, with and for each other.

 

We Series is a festival presenting live art that blurs the boundary between performance and reality. Every Tuesday in November, the We Series offers rituals, participatory performance, and immersion in artist-led experiences.

 

Because your presence at the We Series affects us all, we ask some things of you:

 

  • – Arrive knowing your presence is part of the event. You may be called to participate.

 

  • – Depending on the evening, you may need to bring or prepare something. Read instructions carefully.
