Dream is The Dreamer
© José Caldeira
Dream is the Dreamer is the title for a spatial invocation or a scenic exercise where a fictional topography is called-up establishing a collective imaginary through the development of word and gesture.
The empty stage is intercepted by a coordinated protocol with a described and incorporated sequence of events that establish a scenic temporality. The construct of this sensitive experience of the body stems from a contemplation exercise with a solitary character that contrasts the line of horizon. Through the manipulation of materials the monstrous and human dimensions of a body-skin-flesh are linked and brought into evidence.
