Reveries is a devised exploration of the phenomenon that is dreaming. A hybrid of installation art, movement, music, and theatre, Reveries presents a collaborative effort to stimulate its audience's imagination by immersing them in five pieces that reflect the complexity of our dreams and our various interpretations of them.
The production is directed by Ali Jamali, Calley Luman, Chris Goodrich, Elvin James Patrick, and Orlando Rodriguez with a cast featuring Abigail Milnor-Sweetser, Bailey Van Schepen, Caroline Burke, Dana Stern, Francesca Anderson, Lluvia Almanza, Jaspreet Saund, Marguerite Frarey, Marjay Smith, Peter Qin, Rodrikus Springfield, Sophia Gutchinov, and Stephen G.
