women in public space at night


 NYCTALOPE is a participatory performance in public space that proposes another story for women at night. An artistic action prepared with 30 women from the city. The public is invited to cross a temporarily modified space.

It is a solitary walk to meet :

- Diverted textile installations that dress the city.

- Graphics on the ground, lines and patterns that dot the streets.

- Sound diffusion points that transform our experience of the night.

- 30 women who walk, sing, run and inhabit the different installations.

NYCTALOPE plays with real and fictional fears, with strategies of avoidance and circumvention, to turn the night upside down and reclaim the city.

The red threads enclose, liberate, protect or underline the women and the city to create phantasmagorical images between dream and nightmare.
