LUIS TABUENCA

DREAMTIME is Luis Tabuenca’s latest creation, an “hipno-opera” that will allow you to visit six dreamlike poems/scenes. It is a multidisciplinary piece, conceived for a dancer, two sopranos, a percussionist, electronics and video


Tabuenca invites several art related people to methodically capture their dreams; not only its plot, but also anything related to its visual and musical landscape. A Meta-libretto is born from these dream diaries, with poetry from Gonçalo Tavares that, intertwined with structural, conceptual and aesthetic guidelines, gives shape to DREAMTIME. In this way, the dreamers and their dreams become actors, spectators and authors of their own piece.
