Since the early days of New York’s tenement houses, shift workers have had to share beds, making such spaces a fundamental part of immigrant life. In “Your Day is My Night”, director Lynne Sachs and a collective of seven Chinese non-professional performers (ages 59-75) collaborate on a new theater and cinema project that brings light to shift beds as a continuously relevant urban experience. Initially postponed by the power outages and flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy on the Lower East Side, “Your Day is My Night” returns to University Settlement as part of their Performance Project series Thursday, December 13 through Saturday, December 15.
