Reverie

2022

Enter a metaphorical universe in which all sense of time is lost, where characters evoke a surreal and swirling dreamlike state.

Blurring the line between the real and the imaginary, Reverie invites audiences into a ‘fantasy-like’ world in which they might recognise their own emotions, phobias and behaviours.

Reverie explores how memories and the past shape our collective narrative. Drawing inspiration from the use of archetypes in Lewis Carol’s Alice and Carl Jung’s theories on the subconscious, the work creates connections between the known and the unfamiliar to demonstrate how interchangeable these states can be.
