Dream Island (2015) - Premiere @ Baltimore Theatre Project (MD), Tour @ Joe's Movement Emporium, DC - concept/direction/choreography/environment, object, and costume design/performance
Part carnival, part laboratory, part archeological trip, “Dream Island” is inspired by a Japanese theme park built on a buried landfill called Yumenoshima. This piece digs, examines, and reveals ancient layers of debris by combining movement, text, music, and installation into humorous and dark absurdity. The audience is asked to bare witness as five characters attempt to search, reconstruct, and uncover memories and histories, both tangible and fleeting, personal and collective. "Dream Island" was 85-minute of length, consisting of three parts with thirteen vignettes.
