'Night Journey / Nattvakten' takes the audience aboard a sightseeing boat called "TAKE A CHANCE ON ME"
We are greeted by two enigmatic stewards who care for us throughout the journey.
We are given blankets and drinks. In our headphones, we hear a softly spoken text against a background of a cinematic soundscape.
The poet and architect Björner Torsson's poetic narrative is a challenging evocation of the mystery and darkness of water. As the journey continues, we are all taken on an inner journey - what does it mean to be alive - what can it mean to be dead?
The boat trip lasts 50 min.
The text is broadcast in both Swedish and English, read by actors Krister Henrikson (SWE) and Linda Marlowe (GB).
