While sleeping, man is at its most vulnerable. In times past it was the duty of the ruler to protect his sleeping subjects against nocturnal dangers. But who protects us today? Who watches over us?
With The Guardians of Sleep David Weber-Krebs creates a microcosm of social responsibility by staging the moment of falling asleep as the line between exposition and control. How close can we get to each other and when does care tip into absolute power?
