Join a mysterious journey where adventurous costumes, lights, music and technology create exciting surprises. What is dream and what is reality?
Agnes is almost a teenager. She’s ended up in a huge house where there’s a weird little family. How did she get here? Inside the house, the strangest things happen, and Agnes meets strange characters – as in a dream. She also meets Alfred and Jenny. Together they discover puzzles and problems that need to be solved. As the pieces fall into place, their view of the surroundings – and themselves – changes forever.
In Dream Game, you are invited on a journey into a universe of colourful characters. We get a chance to see reality in completely new ways. Life’s both small and large, and questions are answered with children’s curious views of the world.
With Dreamplay we wanted each character to have their own soundscape that moved with them. We discussed how to do this in workshops and with ourselves in detail, and after considering and testing microcontrollers we chose to use a system of Ipod touches connected to a portable wireless access point. Then we used OSC to trigger each Ipod. Using Ipods also enabled the actors to control their own sounds if required. Portable lighting was also embedded in some costumes and props using small portable wireless LED controllers. This also enabled us to integrate the lighting into a show where each character carried soundscape together created one overall atmosphere of lighting and sound.
