The world premiere of Kevin O’Connell’s DreamCatchr to a libretto by Lily Akerman.
Jane and Polly are sisters. They live together, they share a world together – until Jane becomes obsessed with the idea of creating a computer application that can capture dreams, and creates her own pixellated reality which Polly can’t enter.
Alternately comical, bizarre and disturbing, DreamCatchr explores the borders between dreams and waking life, sisterhood and selfhood.
Funded by an Arts Council Project Award.
