Madam and Evening: A Living Dream Installation

March 24, 2012 - April 15, 2012

Created in collaboration with the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and Colorado College drama and dance department, this student performance includes elements of dance, theater, film, and other interdisciplinary media. Thematically, the project is an exploration of the profundity and absurdity of dreams, and an examination of their role within the human experience. Dreams exist as personal experiences that create an imagined reality of unique aesthetic possibilities outside of the tangible world. In this performance-based installation, Madam and Evening escape into the unconscious, simultaneously experiencing the same dream. While individual agency and influence remain intact, reality and expectations do not. There is a multimedia installation available for view every day when the FAC is open (Tuesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.) Live performances featuring dancers Arob Dickerson and Dolo McComb as Madam and Evening will take place every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 1p to 5p.
