During this time of isolation and in this world-wide crisis, the year-long Vigil performance continues in Graz, Austria. In this performance for 730 vigils, each participant holds watch over their city for an hour at sunrise and sunset, over 365 days. Each Vigil stands alone, but together they form a human chain, a manifestation of community, humanity and resilience. This has become even more significant today, in these troubling times, as we in turn watch over and protect each other, our cities and our planet.

"I thank each and every one of the Vigils and Companions for their committment to the performance. Each Vigil stands for us all. Over the past 10 years, The Vigil has been running continuously in France, Germany, the Netherlands and Austria in the towns and cities of Belfort, Laval, Rennes, Haguenau, Freiburg, Évreux, Dordrecht and Graz. We have great pleasure in announcing two upcoming Vigil performances : Türmer München, for the Gasteig Theater in Munich, Germany, due to start on the 12th of December 2020 and The Hull Vigil, for Freedom Festival in Hull, UK, due to start in March 2021. — JL
