General information

DREAMTIME, is a new opera-performance for para two sopranos, percussion, dance, electronic music and video. Its libretto, written by the Angolan / Portuguese poet Gonçalo Tavarés, is based on a selection of dreams of artists from different disciplines.

The work is conceived as a “hypnopera”, a transdisciplinary stage work based on the dreams of a series of people. It is the second installment of the Espejos trilogy by Luis Tabuenca. DREAMTIME aims to explore new musical-scenic dramaturgies that redefine our way of telling and telling ourselves.

This campaign is focused on financing the production expenses of the project, which include the set design, costumes, masks, light design and documentation, that is, the video and audio recording of the project. We want to finance a part of the project through Goteo so that it has collaborative financing , continuing with the idea of horizontally working in all aspects of the production process.

Description of the project. Main features, strengths and differentials.

It is an innovative, inclusive and nomadic project, with artists from different backgrounds and disciplines. The creation phase is currently being developed at the Fabra i Coats Creation Factory in Barcelona.

The main objectives proposed by this project are:

• Generate ties between artists from different origins and disciplines around goals and creative experiences that drive us, and that lead us to continue generating new projects despite the difficulty of the current moment.

• Contribute to the advancement and development of contemporary performing arts, reorienting their practices towards a more dynamic form of 21st century art.

• Taking opera out of conventional spaces and auditoriums in order to create new audiences.

• Explore different aspects of music in a transdisciplinary environment, which can give rise to new musical-scenic dramaturgies arising from collaboration between artists.

• Rethink the **meaning of opera in general **and its role in our society.

• Generate original and innovative results that serve as a model of integration and interaction between the arts and the community.


Why this is important

The main motivation to develop DREAMTIME is to contribute to “amplify” voices and dialogues that revolve around current creation.
We face this project by appealing to the values that have always characterized the way of acting of both Luis Tabuenca and his collaborators. These values are:

• Creativity, Innovation, Risk, Freedom, Passion, Effort, Generosity and Collaboration.

Starting from the local sphere, and understanding this as a common social space resulting from the practices and daily contacts between a diverse group, we feel that our experience with DREAMTIME will be enriched by, and will enrich, all audiences and social organizations and cultural that we strive to convene.
