n o p l a c e is a contemporary performance about four women trapped in the borderline territory between the state of wakefulness and sleep. The work investigates the permeable boundaries between the fictive and the real specifically looking at Hypnagogia – the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep. It draws on Hypnos the Greek mythological personification of sleep and his sons Morpheus, Phantasus and Icelus.
n o p l a c e is the perceptional experience of the subconscious mind transcending into a physical, sonic and visual manifestation creating an innovative work of contemporary performance.
