"TraumNovela explores one man's spiral into obsession.  'This Man' finds himself in a strange nightclub populated by performers who may or may not be fragments of his own splintering mind.  As he travels deeper within this strangely intriguing underworld in search of his lost wife, he encounters a Freudian dreamscape that changes him in ways he could never have imagined.  This gloriously strange dance musical is inspired by Dream Story by Arthur Schnitzler," describe press notes.
