When The Day Met the Night

And The Night Met the Day

The Spring Equinox is upon us - a moment in time when the day is equal to night,  announcing the arrival of Spring.
Nature is awakening, the dead of winter is over and life appears once more. Another year. The journey continues. 
 
When The Day Met the Night And The Night Met the Day was a promenade, audio piece made with a community cast, led by artists Darragh O'Leary, Anna-Maria Nabirye & Ted Barrow. 
It was experienced on the move around Marine Court in St Leonards-On-Sea as the streets and land marks of St Leonards itself become our stage..
