Location: Joe’s Movement Emporium

A highly charged physical expression, ‘Dream Island’ is part carnival, part laboratory, part archeological trip. Melding movement, text, music, and installation, it concocts thirteen vignettes infused with playful, humorous, explosive, amorphous, and dark absurdity. Initially inspired by a Japanese theme park built on the buried landfill called ‘Dream Island’, this piece digs, examines, and reveals layers of debris, getting deeper and more distant from the reality. The audience is asked to bare witness as five characters attempt to search, reconstruct, and uncover memories and histories, both tangible and fleeting, personal and collective.

Direction and structure by Naoko Maeshiba, created by Emily Hall, Sarah Lloyd, Donald Roderick, Danni Tsuboi, & Naoko Maeshiba, sound design and light installation by Khristian Weeks, environment design by Khristian Weeks, Naoko Maeshiba, & Sarah Lloyd, Lighting design by Helen Garcia Alton.

Admission $25
