DREAMED & QUARTERED



 

 

A highly visual and auditory dreamscape.

Two mysterious figures emerge from the darkness, a woman dressed in black holding a glass of water, and a man in white holding a lighter. Suddenly they connect with a spark, a video of volcanic eruptions and a blindfolded figure rises from a parachute mirroring dance of lava onscreen. The music shifts, and the glass of water is brought in to cool things down. Images transform to whales swimming in water and the parachute billows on stage. It all seems like a dream...because that's just what it is.

The blindfolded figure is awakened to reality, but he soon finds that waking life is a noisy nightmare that threatens to pull him apart. Hence the title, referring to the torture method "drawn & quartered," which modern life inadvertantly does with all its chaos.
