What happens after everyone has gone to sleep?

The blackbird sings to welcome the night.

The day slows and soon all are asleep.

All except one who cannot sleep.

A child, curious to know who looks after the night.

And so begins a magical journey through the dark and beautiful night until the black bird sings again to welcome a new day.

Teater Refleksion and Andy Manley are internationally regarded for their poignant and poetic shows for the very young. Audiences will be immersed in a magical universe surrounded by a beautifully designed structure.


Night Light is an Imaginate commission co-produced by Red Bridge Arts and supported by the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund, as well as The Danish Arts Foundation and the Municipality of Aarhus. The Festival on tour is supported by the Foyle Foundation. It is touring Scotland for 3 weeks before coming to the festival.
