What happens after everyone has gone to sleep?

As the black bird sings everyone gets ready for bed. Mister Night starts his rounds watching over everyone. All are quiet, except for one little girl. With help from a little moon dust, she joins Mister Night to explore the dark and beautiful light that emerges… until the blackbird sings again to start a new day. 

Teater Refleksion and Andy Manley (creator of White) are internationally regarded for their poignant and poetic shows for the very young. Cozy-up in our beautifully designed tent and come on a journey to a magical universe.

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.
