somnus was a work commissioned by the Fremantle biennale 2019. It was a radical enquiry into the nature of sleep, immersing audiences in the experiences of four sleepers. By day the pillared warehouse of PS Art Space was a sleep sanctuary, which transformed at night into an otherworld of kinetic still lives, nocturnal languages, poetry, and haunting music-scapes where audiences roamed between stages of sleep.

Written by Jennifer Kornberger, directed by Horst Kornberger, with music composed by Eva Jurgec, costume design by Carolin Linge and set design by Tom Muller, somnus was a large-scale collaboration between an outstanding ensemble of Slovenian and Australian artists
