Desolate dreams

an installation performance


She's as red as her urges.

He's as white as his mechanism fighting.

She's as blue as her thought wandering around.

They're as beautiful as the timeless dreams they share.

Desolate Dreams is an installation-performance researching the lonely identity. Does the individual still create an identity when they are alone?

The three performers each embody one of the three personality aspects Freud coined as the id, the ego and the superego. They take you on a journey into a desolate dreamworld searching for who they truly are.

Desolate Dreams was made for and performed at MoMeNT-festival in Tongeren, Belgium.
