I Dream of
I Dream of is a digital artwork about dreaming of a city.
Performed as a duet for two audiences members linked through a pair of mobile phones participants take a walk together through a local park, imagining past, present and future dreamscapes, walking in the real and virtual world.
With a soundscape created from field recordings of the city and voice recordings left live by the audience the work grows and evolves as each new audience member takes part.
I Dream of is a site responsive piece that takes on the identity of the place it is performed and is available as a live touring work.
I Dream of Lagos was the first iteration of the work commissioned as part of The Lagos Theatre Festival and British Council’s UK/Nigeria 2015-16 programme.
I Dream of is the touring version of If You Go Away which was originally supported by Arts Council England, East Street Arts, Leeds City Council, the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Compass Live Art and Watermans Art Centre. If You Go Away was originally presented by V&A Digital Design Weekender, John Hansard Gallery, Warwick Arts Centre and Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art.
