NACHT [NIGHT]

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.
