In August 2011, internationally renowned artist, architect and designer, Ron Arad invited his favourite musicians and friends to create unique work for Curtain Call, his 360° interactive installation showing throughout in August at the Roundhouse.As part of Curtain Call we created Waking Dream a 360° audio visual experience exploring fleeting moments of intensely surreal dreams, when lulled to sleep in transit.
Bringing together theatre, dance and digital animation, Waking Dream takes us on a disorienting journey through the subconscious of a sleeping commuter.

"...SDNA have engaged with the possibilities of a 360-degree screen as well as the original function of the Roundhouse as a railway engine shed, to create a work based around the surreal dream of a commuter who has nodded off in transit. Featuring multiples of figures dressed in smart office garb and choreographed to a rhythmical soundtrack reminiscent of rumbling trains, it's visually and aurally gripping.", Time Out.
