Quiet Time

Main Stage

quiet time

Creating a quiet space for reflection on the changing world around us.

The arts are a reflection of the world around us, and can also offer solace and relief from that world. In music, silence is just as important as sound.  Songwriter, singer and musician Robin Dann, no stranger to creating this type of atmosphere, guest curates an audiovisual musical experience that calms, soothes, and inspires.  

From past personal experiences, the beauty of the Arctic illuminates the music of both Dann and composer Allison Cameron, as we create a welcoming space inspired by some of the quietest sounds of the world – after all, silence is golden. 


Quiet Time is an audio-visual experience that will transport you beyond a traditional online show presentation.

  • Grab a high quality pair of headphones, or use 3D speakers
  • Turn the lights down (or light some candles)
  • Get comfortable – slippers, housecoats, pyjamas, all are great!
  • Event lasts approximately 1 hour, with a 2-minute interlude
