Night 1001

Night 1001 is an exhibition and live re-voicing of the last night of Barbara Campbell’s durational performance 1001 nights cast (2005–2008). The project saw her telling a new story live and online at sunset every night for 1001 consecutive nights. Each story in the collection had been written in response to a prompt Barbara extracted from that day’s newspaper reports on events in the Middle East. PSpace presented Barbara’s last night as a live event before an audience of her writers and those watching online. Night 1001 remediates some of the physical traces of the last story and honours all those who kept Barbara and the project alive for its duration.

**On Sunday 29 October, Join Barbara at sunset (7:19PM, AEDT) in Bay 19 as she duets with her 2008 self to read the last story from 1001 nights cast.**

Ticketing: FREE

The development and production of 1001 nights cast was supported by the Australia Council for the Arts; Arts ACT, Arts NSW, and the University of Sydney.
