Can sleep be turned into a form of activism?
Tuesday Night Sleeping Club is a night and action radio which connects the sleeping city and allows us to experience how we already participate in the great community of sleep.
Join in the exploration of this community when we consciously step into the unknown and give in to the intuitive space of night and dreams – together.
From each of our homes, each in our own bed, hello!earth brings us through a series of nightly rituals and actions, each designed to prepare us for sliding through the keyhole and into the rift between reality and dream, into a state in which everything is open.
Does sleep possess the ability to become a new form of activism, in which we grant value to the magical, immaterial, and ineffective? How can sleep provide us with enriched knowledge of how we shape our societies and communities in our waking hours?
We meet the sleep together. You have your choice of two channels: one which allows you to sleep and dream, one which during the nightly hours will invite you out into the city on nightly gatherings or solitary explorations guided by the radio.
These alternative nightly gatherings take place on several spots in Copenhagen. They are organized by local individuals committed to the purpose of exploring the nighttime as an alternative space for assembly. Join in a breaking-dawn-protest to support Syrian children, a writing class for poetry in a private apartment of Vesterbro – or something else entirely.
Explore our programme of nightly gatherings, or create your own and invite others on the radio’s web page:

THE PRESS WROTE ABOUT ‘THE NIGHT‘ FROM 2018:
”Når der endelig er nogen, der tør tænke på fremtiden, er det vildt tiltrængt, at der også er nogen, der begiver sig ud på det mere konstruktive spor (…) Godt, at Hello!Earth kan tænde et lille bål i vores tanker – med fremadrettet kraft. Et inspirerende eksempel på, hvordan teatrene i disse år i stigende grad er begyndt at bruge det, der er teatrets force med et mere udadvendt samfundsmæssigt sigte: (…) At bruge teatret til at finde ud af, hvordan vi kan agere sammen i andre typer fællesskaber, er en god grunddemokratisk øvelse.”
hello!earth is Jacob Langaa-Sennek, scenographer and visual artist, and Vera Maeder, choreographer and performance artist. hello!earth has the participants in the centre as co-creators. The audience experiences, senses and acts in performances exploring our consciousness and the myth of reality. through several years, hello!earth has worked on developing staged processes contributing to a sharpened attention and consciousness in the search of new spiritual and sensory communities.
with input from philosophers and experts, hello!earth creates an artistic laboratory with room for great and fragile visions. here new thoughts and ideas can become real, and here you create the world instead of consume it.
