SOMNIUM

 

Presented by MOTUS COLLECTIVE

Is this my dream or yours?

Double bill performance of ‘SOMNIUM’ and ‘3 in E-Flat’

SOMNIUM
Warped realities, changing scenes in the blink of an eye, the unsettling, uncanny nightmare realm and the almost unexplainable whacky goings on.

Is this my dream or yours?

In the creation of this piece, we have been inspired by states of dreaming and the imaginings of our unconscious minds. Our process included dream retelling, delving into various animal personalities, object research, and play with cat tunnels.
Let your thoughts run wild and come along for the journey.

‘3 in E-Flat’
Look into the comic book story that plays out in our heads. Logical and emotional, forever finding the moments where the mind is wise. This bright, energetic piece brings to life the humour of the manic and insane thought patterns we all experience at times.

It is said that we are the concious state of presence that is the awareness of our feelings and thoughts. Is it possible to shut off your mind from all of these things? Let’s open up the mind and see.

E-Flat Minor is a look into the comic book story that plays out in our head. Logical and Emotional forever finding the moments where the mind is wise. This bright, energetic piece brings to life the humour of the manic and insane thought patterns we all experience at times.

Near light – when we accept the suffering we all experience we can wake up to the fact this is all a dream. Dreamt up by the collective mind for centuries before us, this realm we experience has a linear frame which we project this dream onto. We have the opportunity to step outside of our own prison when we stop and strip our identification with the egos attachment of self. Realising the light we search for has always been near – within ourselves
