BODY DREAMING

IN DEVELOPMENT

Body Dreaming is an installation-performance in which performers reveal a flow of inner thoughts, feelings and movements. This is captured live with a camera, audio recording and writing, all of which are streamed and projected into the gallery space. 

Audiences can attend the exhibition both to experience the live performance, and at other times to view the projected media.
