Join us from the last hours of the night until the very early morning for a performance by internationally renowned, artist, writer and performer Caroline Bergvall.

The performance begins at 5.14am and is 55 minutes long. Following the performance, there will be a communal breakfast for the audience to enjoy using locally sourced ingredients.

Ragadawn is a powerful and moving performance combining music, text and voices in outdoor locations to reconnect audiences to time, place and each other.

An earlier incarnation was first performed in 2016 as sold-out performances at the Festival de la Batie (Geneva) and Estuary Festival (Southend), garnering great reviews.

The threshold spaces where Ragadawn is performed are not only points of conflict but of fluidity: where cultures blend, languages overlap, people trade and fall in love. Places where understanding and solidarity become possible.    – The Wire
