Eyes of a Blue Dog Grace Herman-Holland & The Woolgatherers

About This Show

For years now, they’ve been meeting in their dreams. In reality, they’ve never met.

One wakes each morning and searches for the other. But the other wakes and remembers nothing of their dreams.

Eyes of a Blue Dog, adapted from the short story by Gabriel García Márquez, is an explosion of hopes ignited and extinguished. The Woolgatherers spent a season exploring this story all around New York City—on trains and busses, in parks and grocery stores—piecing together the sounds and images they found. That collage of fantasy and reality is this show: a cyclical dream-play about love- lost and found, sought and forgotten.
