THE NIGHTLINE | @UTP
ADD YOUR VOICE TO A NEW WORK! You're invited to leave an anonymous phone message on the NIGHTLINE: 02 8078 6974. Your message can be about what you're dreaming, thinking, doing, hearing, seeing or feeling between midnight and 6am. Whether it's a weird dream, a personal reflection or even a song we'd love to hear your voice on the line...
The NIGHTLINE phone messages will provide inspiration and source material for a new immersive audio work exploring wonder, anxiety and the sounds of the night. The NIGHTLINE is currently open midnight-6am and taking calls until December 2018.
Roslyn Oades, in close collaboration with sound artist Bob Scott and the Brainstrust (a collective of young Western Sydney artists), is currently developing The Nightline project with Urban Theatre Projects as part of RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW.
Commissioned and produced by Urban Theatre Projects
RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. (URBAN THEATRE PROJECTS)

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