Dear attentive ones, We
invite you to be present with us – here. You’re welcome to embody
anything between an attentive sleep or a sleepy-wakeful state and allow
yourself to fall together with us. Listen closely. We invite you to
quietly notice all that is in the room with us, and tune in to both
bodily sensing-hearing and active listening. Through the whispering of
ambient stories and the dripping of memories from our (non–)human
ancestors, we will tune our collective liminal state to create a shared
dreamscape that will animate the installation. Long after you leave, the
resonances of this evening’s sonic explorations will linger in the
room. Dreamily yours, Lou & Yen

Dear dreamers, You
are invited to a night that explores the liminality of 'falling',
through light, darkness, sound, poetry and memories, as they relate to
the altered states of sleeping, loving, and sensing.
this eight-hour night journey, you are invited to co-create a shared
‘here’ together, where you will encounter performances by ten dream
figures. We will traverse through imaginary landscapes of inaudible
frequencies, sleep-inducing rhythms, dream echoes, a lullaby of
nightmares, shimmers of darkness, nocturnal wanders, and bedtime tales.
feel free to join in or drift away anytime during the night, while
being aware of the creatures that are falling into, or out of dreams
around you. (*If you are feeling unwell, please do not hesitate to talk to our dream guardians from ICA) Wishing to hear and hold you softly here. Sincerely, Your dream-figure collective.
