Not long ago. And not far from now. In the aftermath of unspeakable tragedy, an opportunistic reporter visits a sacred space defiled by American violence, in search of a story ready made for Hollywood—only to find that history repeats itself too soon, and too close to home.

A PAC NYC world premiere from the acclaimed artistic team of Tony Award-winning choreographer/dancer/director/writer Bill T. Jones (Fela!, Spring Awakening), poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph (We Shall Not Be Moved), composer Tamar-kali (Mudbound) and dramaturg Lauren Whitehead (Between the World and Me: Onstage at the Apollo). Watch Night fuses melodies rooted in spirituals, percussive breath and fiery opera with the urgency of slam poetry and Bill T. Jones’ dynamic staging to create an immersive exploration of justice and forgiveness in the face of deadly rage.

Audience Advisory:

Contains depictions and references to anti-Black racism, antisemitism, violence, and mature language. Contains theatrical haze.
