Sleepout, as the event is called, kicks off at 9 p.m. on April 20, and over the course of the ensuing 12 hours, there will be DJs, horror movies, karaoke, s'mores, storytelling, "Plushies" (an art installation of stuffed animals by Megan Blafas) and all kinds of slumber-themed performances.
One is "Pillow Talk," which finds Maida Withers Dance Construction Company members leaping and tumbling with pillows in their hands and strapped to their bodies. Meanwhile, performance artist Calder Brannock will bring "Cuddle Collaboration" to the party, inviting strangers into a bed for a few sweet nothings.
WPA is inviting people to bring sleeping bags and tents, but with so much going on, it seems like it'll be just like the good old days, when you stayed up all night because you didn't want to miss any fun.
No word yet on the prank policy for the first to fall asleep.
