Join us for our first Midnight Vigil featuring «Abbot Adam: Matins/Lauds,» a performance installation by No Face Performance Group.

Matins/Lauds is the latest installment of Abbot Adam, an ongoing series of works that uses the structure of medieval monasticism—specifically the rigorous practice of hourly prayer—to examine the concepts of commitment, community, and desire. In residence at the Barnes for three consecutive nights, the artists, performing as medieval nuns, will engage in a devotional practice from midnight to sunrise. Alternating periods of improvised creation with brief cycles of sleep, the performers spontaneously compose a night in the abbey as mundanity gives way to delirium. The first two nights from July 6–7 will be live-streamed, while the third night on July 8 is open for the public to experience in person. Drop in or stay for the entire vigil.
