What's on stage at Baltimore Theatre Project:

Dream Island

Naoko Maeshiba/Kibism

Thu May 21 - Sun May 31

An "exquisite moving work of art."

A highly charged physical expression, Dream Island is part carnival, part laboratory, part archaeological trip. Melding movement, text, music, and installation, it concocts thirteen vignettes infused with playful, humorous, explosive, amorphous, and dark absurdity. Initially inspired by a Japanese theme park built on the buried landfill called Dream Island, this piece digs, examines, and reveals layers of debris, getting deeper and more distant from the reality. The audience is asked to bare witness as five characters attempt to search, reconstruct, and uncover memories and histories, both tangible and fleeting, personal and collective.

"This work is a thoughtful emotional story told through human interaction with each other, the environment, and sound. Without spoiling the surprise you can expect contemplations on the use of bananas, the pure joy of a trip to the beach, the torment of facing questions, the joy of asking them, the complicated language of touch, and much, much more." -- Paul Davis, TheatreBloom
