«Shall we give a little party in complete darkness?» Our answer to Virginia Woolf’s question is the «Owl’s Night». Since some people are larks and others are owls. The latter stay awake and enjoy the night, seeing it as a time of day to be active, productive and creative. Look forward to a long, dark night full of programme highlights:

Guided night-time tour in Tierpark Bern, Dählhölzli

When the visitors leave the zoo in the evening, things turn quiet. The animals are left to their own devices. While some settle down for a good night’s rest, others are just starting to wake up. On the guided night-time tour we discover a completely new, no less exciting side to the animal kingdom and observe dancing animals at night.

Alleyne Dance (UK): A Night’s Game

Two performers burst across the stage in fast and flowing movements. Using the shadow and light patterns cast by the dark stage lighting, a dynamic choreography unfolds that attempts to reflect the turmoil of human emotion when faced with the prospect of incarceration. Explore the minds journey as the contemplation of the loss of freedom engulfs every waking moment. Twin sisters Kristina and Sadé present dynamic and athletic movements to the audience with grace and beauty. Inspired by true life events, they create a dark, atmospheric and abstract work that is both thrilling and powerful.

Tanz in Bern feat. Heitere Fahne: Hemmigs-Metzgete

Inhibitions – they are the horror of every adventure and the utopia killer par excellence. And we want to keep them in the dark. In the colourful Heitere Fahne caravan, inhibitions are now tackled with unique wit, charm and passion. Venture in, help others to get rid of their hidden
fears, or pluck up the courage to face your own inhibitions.

Sport in the Dark

Darkness can be experienced as something pleasant, as a place that enables you to deploy your utmost concentration and as
a space where you can be yourself without judgement. We want to make full use of these opportunities during the After-Show- Late-Night-Work Out with Isabelle Probst. The guests are invited to concentrate on their own body and fitness while exercising in a dark studio.
