SOMNUS is a radical enquiry into the nature of sleep, immersing audiences in the experiences of four sleepers as they cycle through the fear and ecstasy of REM and non-REM states. By day the pillared warehouse of PS Art Space is a sleep sanctuary, which transforms at night into an otherworld of kinetic still lives, nocturnal languages, poetry, and haunting music-scapes where audiences roam between stages of sleep. What lights up in this panorama is our passionate search for meaning as we encounter our 'nightself'.
Written by Jennifer Kornberger, directed by Horst Kornberger, with music composed by Eva Jurgec, costume design by Carolin Linge and set design by Tom Muller, SOMNUS is a large-scale collaboration between some of Slovenia's best performers and an outstanding ensemble of Australian artists.

Theatre of the Sea fuses multiple genres to produce installations and immersive events. Elements of site activation, theatre, ritual, live music, and poetry establish temporary sanctuaries where audiences participate in acts of transformation.
