The Wallis Studio Ensemble presents LUCID
, an original physical theatre work inspired by August Strindberg’s A Dream Play
, Caryl Churchill’s adaptation and the poems of Anne Sexton, at the Hudson Theatre Mainstage in LA. Created by the ensemble, and directed and choreographed by Madeleine Dahm, Lucid
tells the story of a group of individuals who join a sleep study, hoping to cure their insomnia. But when an unexpected woman shows up, they find themselves trapped in a bizarre collective dream state that forces them to confront dark secrets and hidden truths. Striking, surrealistic and full of unexpected juxtapositions, the devised physical theater work incorporates movement, imagery, soundscape, live and recorded music, as it asks us to look more closely at the waking lies we tell ourselves, the quiet prejudices we carry, and the role fear has in inflating human ego.
