Dag van de Componist: Night Shift

The audience becomes performer


Jun 15

Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream forms the starting 
point of Night Shift. Here the artisans, a group of 
amateur actors, come together to rehearse a play.From 
this fact, a play within a play, the idea for 
Night Shift emerged: a public rehearsal used to develop 
a performance unique to each place, time or presentation. 
Composer Cathy Milliken invites everyone to be 
curious and participate during Composer Day 
(Dag van de Componist). The Australian Milliken 
makes musical theatre, chamber music, radio plays, 
installations, theater and film music. 
Night Shift was commissioned by CONNECT, The Audience 
as Artist, an initiative supported by ART MENTOR 
FOUNDATION LUCERNE in collaboration with London 
Sinfonietta, Ensemble Modern, Asko|Schönberg and 
Remix Ensemble.
