SLEEPS LAST FRIDAY ART WALK / Light vs. Dark

SLEEPS LAST FRIDAY ART WALK / Light vs. Dark

5pm Friday, February 22 in the Whiteaker NeighborhoodThe SLEEPS’ Strike Team will offer a view into the darker side of being a human, un-housed, and trying to sleep on the streets of Eugene, Oregon.

Every night the human biological need to sleep demands its time and space. It has no mercy, nor heed to environment. And short of death nothing can ever prevent it. The uncontrollable consequences of being human are inescapable for all human beings. However, for those in our community that are un-housed the consequences shift in hue and tone to a sometimes very dark reality. How would you sleep if you knew each night’s effort to sleep was a roll of the dice, with the odds always against you…

Come join our Last Friday Art Walk Street Theater team for a night of light vs dark and life vs death.

And as always SLEEPS asks you to consider what role you fill in the urban theater we call life?
