hypnagogia Tiffany Osedra Miller & Peggy Gould

About This Show

This interdisciplinary work-in-progress is inspired by the poetic and atmospheric literary artistry of the 1920’s Harlem Renaissance associated writer, Jean Toomer (Cane) and the Polish 1930’s writer, Bruno Schulz (Street of Crocodiles) and their heightened depictions of their subjects’ interior lives.  In this performance, dance, visual art, live music, theater, and digital processing frame the players in hypnagogia, the rarified realms of multi-consciousness accessible to us during meditation and deep sleep.  Mythic/historic alter egos are personified, revealing archetypal facets of identity that both embrace and defy recognition. What you see is what you dream.
