Dreamscapes is choreographed for 5 dancer/circus arts performers and fuses contemporary dance, aerial harness, aerial fabric, static trapeze, and stilt disciplines to depict the ethereal wonder of dreams and the surreal terror of nightmares. Various realms are born out of each dreaming figure’s inner consciousness, generating a series of fantastical vignettes ranging from grotesque, misshapen bodies in a landscape of destruction to an otherworldly scene of angelic beings in aerial fabric. The completed work will run about 35 minutes and will premiere September 19-21 as part of Dreamscapes and Other Imaginings, a co-production with The Muse in Williamsburg Brooklyn.
Above and Beyond Dance will be hosting a Benefit Party/Performance on Saturday, June 7 at 7pm at Soundance Studio in Williamsburg Brooklyn. We will be previewing two completed sections of Dreamscapes, as well as a sharing a company repertory piece. The evening also includes wine, light hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction. Then, on Saturday, June 14 at 8:00pm we will be premiering another section of Dreamscapes on the MuseIam showcase at The Muse.
