HYPNAGOGIA

 

Hypnagogia is the place in-between awake and sleep.
Hypnagogia is the void that becomes alive.
Hypnagogia is the night before the nightmare.


This live art/visual theatre experience adventures in those "in-between" places in life, dark corners and voids we are very much afraid of; will we ever be able to reconcile with what hides in the dark? Are those screaming voices there to scare us or asking for help?

What happens when the bridge between yin and yang opens?

Sci-FY, surrealist, awkward and confusing, Hypnagogia is a collaboration with live sound artist Mars Pacis, which shorter version has been performed as part of Midsumma Festival at Theatre Works as part of #QueerQuickies.
Using mediums such as spoken word, movement (with practice in #Butoh and #Feldenkrais method), sound art, inspirations from paintings by Francis Bacon and the Carl Jung "Shadow self" theory shamble, together with the ancient practice of dream incubation transported to modern times.
