Ariane Van Vliet and Karel Tuytschaever in an audio fragment of Nacht [Night], radio play installation, 2016
Two lovers never see each other.
They only know each other’s voices.
They make love over the telephone.
As if shipwrecked by love, they yearn for a life in the city, without loneliness.
What is reality, what is fiction?
NACHT [NIGHT] is an intimate radio play of the senses. The spectator’s ear replaces the visual imagination.
