In “24H of Sleep” Kristīne Brīniņa explores different states of sleep as the possible refuge from the fear induced by the reality. The spectators are invited to spend 24 minutes in a landscape that is both familiar and strange and give full play to imagination about the end and beginning of this micro-world. „Now we will count to twelve and we will all keep still.”(Pablo Neruda „Keeping Quiet”)
