Faza Rem Phase
A theatrical dream research
Sleep and dream are the motifs for this performance, a world far from the reality in which we are awake, alive and acting. But what is this dreamland? Is it the netherworld, an individual inside space in which our brain fools us, another reality? Which musical, sculptoral, graphic or theatrical means can we use to get inside the dreams?
After the successful production of Krabat, REM is another collaboration between the puppet theater Wilde & Vogel and the polish Grupa Coincidentia, joined by two young players from the Teatr Lalek Białystok, the two graduates of the Stuttgart puppet theater course Lehmann & Wenzel, and the draftsman and graphic artist Robert Voss.
