As a post-performance reflection, this article addresses the complexities of a number of different issues surrounding the dramaturgies of art–science collaborations and the role of agency when spread across multiple collaborators. It includes comment from the voices – artistic, scientific and academic – involved in shaping Revolve from dusk to dawn and speculates on the impacts of the research and production. Revolve is an interactive performance inspired by sleep science (chronobiology); it was previewed as part of SEAM2011, 17–18 September 2011, at Critical Path in Sydney, premiered in Christchurch, New Zealand, during the Body Festival, 4–5 October 2011, and presented as a lecture performance during the Somatics and Technology 2012 Conference, University of Chichester, 23 June 2012.
