Lonely hearts and nightlife fiends. Insomniacs and shift workers. Guardians over restless babies and wide-eyed truckies barrelling down the highway. These are just some of the voices of The Nightline

A concierge welcomes you into a venue full of intimate, low-lit tables. On each is an old-school telephone and switchboard. This is your unique and direct connection to an extraordinary collection of over 600 soul-baring, skin-tingling voice messages left between midnight and 6am.

Accessibility

National Art School is an accessible venue.

The Nightline is a detailed immersive audio experience and may be of particular interest to audiences with low-vision. A pre-recorded Audio Description introduction will be available closer to January for people who are blind and vision impaired to listen to before attending the work, for context. Please note, being an audio driven experience, this work is not well suited to people who are hard of hearing. 

Further information on access and limited mobility can be found on their website.

Please note: A pre-show audio description will be made available prior to this event.
