Dream Face Experiments


– let your DreamSoulFace do the dancing.

The 15th and 21st of September 2018, a space appeared where the unexpressed and the unexpected could unfold.
The participants could create a mask of their DreamSoulFace and wear it through the exploration. From here they were guided into the space and their own exploration.

The participants were invited to be moved by their DreamSoulFaces move, exploring in zones with titles like:

– Silent Fingers Meeting
– The Bear has Lost its Calm
– Secret surrender
– Restless Wandering
– Scents of Deeper Dreams

Tools for expression were:
– moving
– meeting
– writing
– drawing
– sounding

The participants could freely choose zones and timing. Masks and elements for creating the DreamSoulFaces were available at the site, and the audience could contact the Guardian Dreamer, who was around the performances, regarding any doubts or fears.
