Per Huttner is part of team that is creating performances for sleeping audiences in a project called “Delta.” They are interested how art can become a part of enriching and better understanding the third of our lives that we spend asleep. The starting point can be found in the fact that some people have very rich nocturnal lives, while others only experience sleep as a necessity without any intrinsic value. Those whose minds are active at night and are aware of it, dream of magical and fantastic places and develop inspiring stories. Others find sleep a profoundly sensual experience where bodily pleasures take another form. The project, in other words, changes how we understand sleep and the processes that take place in our bodies during the night. In order to do this in the best of ways, they are approaching the problem in two ways: Firstly, we collaborate with people who have alternative outlook on sleep.
April 29-May 4, 2022, Per Huttner is co-organising a workshop in Lecce together with Italian artist Emilio Fantin, GrossiMaglioni and the organisation Fondazione Lac o le mon. Fantin has over the last decade developed interesting artworks and creative working processes where he investigates how people can collectively investigate and experience dreams.
