The Nightline


We want to hear what’s keeping Sydney-siders awake.

If you’re one of those people who’s often up late, Urban Theatre Projects invites you to leave an anonymous after-midnight voice message on The Nightline.

The Nightline is an audio art project by Roslyn Oades and Bob Scott that will be part of our Art & About program in 2021. It was originally going to pop up in 2020, but Covid-19 dashed our dreams. The Nightline is keen to document this time-warping moment in our city’s history.

As the city hibernates, we beckon you to leave an anonymous voice message between midnight and 6am.

Tell us:

  • what’s keeping you awake?
  • what’s getting you through?
  • who or what are you missing?
  • what dreams are you having?

There are 2 easy ways to leave an after-midnight message on The Nightline:

Record a voice memo (or WhatsApp recording) on your phone and text it to 0457 910 843. Leave an old school phone message by ringing The Nightline direct on 0457 910 843.

We like to listen, so feel free to call as often as you’d like, for as long as you’d like.

Collected messages will be used as content and inspiration for a surprise experience in mid 2021.

Note: We’ve sought special permission to add these audio clips here. Your call is guaranteed to be anonymous, unless you tell us otherwise.
