Program Note

This work was composed as a site-specific work to be installed and performed in Room 405 at Hôtel Graffalgar in Strasbourg.


For Centuries, humans have pondered the meanings of dreams. When we enter a dream, we are able to witness emotions, desires, and memories buried deep within us. However, modern scientists are yet unable to define the link between dreams and consciousness, and how dreams function in our lives. Our consciousness is another unsolved mystery. It is not certain whether consciousness suddenly appeared in us at a point of time in history, or it slowly evolved parallel to the evolution of humanity. This work aims to recreate and explore the liminal boundaries of a subconscious state while in our dreams. Perhaps dreams are the closest state where we are able to take a small peek into our inner selves - our (at times shameful) imperfections and emotions hidden somewhere deep in us.
