THE NIGHTLINE | IN DEVELOPMENT
Are you awake after midnight? We'd love to hear what you're doing, thinking, feeling, dreaming in the early hours. Please call and leave an anonymous NIGHT message on PH: 02 8078 6974
Between midnight and 6am, someone picks up the phone, dials The Nightline and leaves an anonymous message. Award-winning director Roslyn Oades, with sound artist Bob Scott and a Brainstrust of young local artists, is creating an immersive audio-work exploring wonder, anxiety and the sounds of the night.
The Nightline is currently in development with Urban Theatre Projects and will premiere in November 2018 as part a new place-based festival called, RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW.
Commissioned and produced by Urban Theatre Projects
RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. (URBAN THEATRE PROJECTS)
RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. is a new place-based festival launching in Blacktown, Western Sydney. Led by seven Australian and two international artists, RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. explores themes of contemporary feminism, cultural diversity, wonder, and intimacy in suburbia.

Heartfelt thanks to the night owls, insomniacs, dreamers and stargazers who have called the Nightline over the last 18 months. This work would not be possible without your generosity and playfulness. May you rest well and be blessed with the sweetest of dreams. We would also like to acknowledge the input of Angelique Bickerstaff, who was a temporary member of the Brainstrust in 2016.
