Because the Night is a one-off art event. 21 participants board a dark ride built especially for the event in a south Tel Aviv hangar, and go on a journey through the misty and starry darkness of night. The journey in the train cars carries the passengers/participants into a world of animals and night creatures, ghosts and spacemen. Traveling between rooms and forests, planets and stars, the ride slowly builds up into an all-encompassing, mesmerizing experience that echoes contemporary realities and dreams.

Because the Night is an invitation to an extraordinary mystery tour, a total art and performance experience where we are pulled into the depths of night and fly into the future. A dark ride through a parallel universe.

Number of passengers: 21

Passengers must be over 12 years old to board the train.
