Did you want more sleep?
by weish x Marc Gabriel Loh
Video on Demand: 23 Dec – 29 Dec

Did you want more sleep? marries sound and visuals with text to present a fun, unexpected take on live performance broadcasts. Presenting brand new songs inspired by weish's complicated relationship with sleep, the set takes the audience through a journey by turns manic and tender, funny and horrific. Directed and designed by Marc Gabriel Loh and produced by Very Crafty Films, the piece interrogates our relationship with our subconscious and with reality.
