Nocturnal Unrest conquers the night in an emancipatory feminist way! The festival will not turn night into day, but instead blur its boundaries, which might never have existed. What possibilities does the night hold for feminist politics and ways of life far away from narratives of fear, devaluation and exoticization?
Together with you we want to create a place where everyone can engage with bodies, imaginations, knowledge, relationships, and alliances in a new and political way between dusk and dawn. In three overlapping areas – theory, performance, and activism – we stroll through the darkness together with a diverse audience.
Since we had to postpone the main event to 2021 due to the Covid-19-pandemic, we’ll have a teaser programme beginning in October 2020 – that means six single events will open up their very distinct night-scapes in exciting, hybrid, corona-safe formats (digital/analogue) while already giving you a taste of what Nocturnal Unrest will be.
