Nocturne is a journey into the wild side of the city and encounter with the creatures that reside there. As the sun departs and darkness forms audiences are invited to disappear into the underworld, slipping through the concrete and electricity, streetlights and supermarkets in search of something other. Within the shadows and undergrowth we are drawn to a stranger and less familiar place where perspectives shift on our urban landscape.
Created by an international team of artists led by Latvian director Krista Burāne and British maker Andy Field, Nocturne is a different kind of theatrical encounter. Part performance, part walk, part workshop, it is a song of the night and it’s invisible inhabitants.

About the artists

In her work Latvian activist, writer, theatre and film maker Krista Burāne is testing different ways of collaboration with the audience by offering space and time for mutually respectful conversation. Krista is one of the few Latvian artists engaged in the research and practice of documentary and reality theatre.

Andy Field is a theatremaker, curator, and co-director of the multi-award winning collective Forest Fringe. He has created and toured his own contemporary performance work across the UK, Europe and the US. Andy also writes regularly on performance for a number of publications and in 2012 completed a PhD with the University of Exeter exploring the relationship between contemporary performance practice and the New York avant-gardes of the 1960s and 1970s.
