Nattsong is a new multi-sensory stage work in which poet–performer Caroline Bergvall takes an immersive journey into language, refuge and the night.

Created and performed by Bergvall, with unique contributions from composer Gavin Bryars, soprano Peyee Chen, sound designer Jamie Hamilton, and film-maker Andrew Delaney, the work fuses words and music, poetry and performance, songwork and electronic projections into a singular, dreamlike and mesmerising whole.

Nattsong is the final stand-alone part of Bergvall's Sonic Atlas trilogy around languages and poetries in movement and migration, that began with Ragadawn (2016), continued with Conference of the Birds (2018), and now closes with this rich nocturnal call overlooking the sea.

The performance takes place between 18:00-19:00 on Friday 5 November at Turner Contemporary in Margate.

Nattsong has been commissioned by Cement Fields for Estuary 2021 and is supported by Arts Council England, Rivers Institute and Prototype Press.
