Dream Harvest

We are harvesting dreams. We want to collect dreams and consider the ways in which people dream. As well as contributing towards our piece, ‘Snooze’, we will be making a wide database of dreams for future projects. We are hosting a number of workshops across the UK to record dream narratives, but we also need your help.

Click on our ‘Taeke Paert’ page to anonymously tell us about a dream you remember and your dream perceptions. Maybe you have a recurring dream, one that you remember vividly from childhood, or maybe you often dream about turning up to the office naked. Please share! You’ll be helping to make theatre.

Irondale Ensemble workshop education, Brooklyn

I am learning about improvisation.

There are an infinite number of ways to say ‘no’. Art, theatre and mainly improvisational theatre must exist entirely without ‘no’. Take suggestions, take leads of others at all times, at all costs. We are taught to think about the consequences and to worry, fear and dread change. We set out our plans and we don’t want others to get in the way.

So yes, perhaps the route wont be what you expected, but isn’t what you forge out of each unpredicted moment even more intriguing?

I am learning new workshop skills out here in Brooklyn, New York with http://irondale.org/ and the Ringmaster will be most grateful for the doors that are opening to her.
