Daynightly They re-school you The Bears-Polka

With performance material drawn from Goat Island’s eighth performance – When Will The September Roses Bloom? / Last Night Was Only A Comedy – this double film installation re-choreographs and re-locates the original material to a school classroom and adjacent hallway. When presented as an installation, Daynightly… balances stillness and movement as a single interwoven experience for a viewer positioned between the two projections. The work has also screened as a splitscreen film, allowing the viewer to consider the two images as a divided whole. The film’s title comes from the work of German Jewish poet Paul Celan, who sought to ‘repair’ the German language after its manipulated use during the Second World War.
