Oh, My Night

Short pop musical about a kaleidoscopic journey through the night.


Main character Human (Merel Baldé) is stuck in her life. Challenged by her alter ego Blue, she steps out the door. After a revamp at the vamps, she ends up in a club that throws her off balance but also makes her shine. To the sounds of contemporary pop with deep house and disco, loves are born and relationships burst, people drink, dance, kiss, sing, shout, shower. When she steps outside, she walks on enlightened; the morning is sunlit and her dance is an ode to the kaleidoscopic journey through the night that lifted her up and gave her life back.
