Join Open Senses on 24th November and explore the concept of Hibernation through the senses. Can we bend time, slow the body down, switch off our sensory awareness, and drift into a deep hibernation?

During the long winter months, time slows, darkness closes in, and we can all feel sleepy, and inactive. Many species take this a step further and hibernate. The body slows down and breathing, temperature, metabolic and heart rates, all decrease to conserve energy.

Let’s Hibernate is an experience that aims to take the audience into a hypnagogic state – the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep – through the senses.

Bring layers and extra clothing to snuggle in.

Settle in, relax and Let’s Hibernate.

Disarming and wonderful
A sensorial extravaganza
