Andy Manley & Teater Refleksion | Scotland & Denmark | Theatre

Night Light

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.
