In an hour of troubling intimacy, Iara Solano Arana of Sleepwalk Collective samples and replays the iconography of B-movies and early cinema in a joyous and desperate attempt to re-work cinematic and cultural clichés into something heartfelt and profound.

Sleepwalk Collective is an award-winning live art and experimental theatre group creating intimate performance experiences emerging from a fascination with pop culture junk, intoxication, and the mysteries and complexities of human relationships.

Winner of Best Production and Best Female Performer for Iara Solano Arana at the 2011 BE Festival.

'An unsettlingly languid but hauntingly touching display of live art tragi-comic stand-up' The Herald
