Event Information

This program dives into the hope and discomfort of dreams, the moments when we let go and imagine a thing wouldn’t name when we’re awake. When we started thinking about this program, we began with Houtaf Khoury’s “Apres un reve” (2008), a modern nightmare reacting to the terror of relentless war in the Middle East: a dream of hope amidst the fatigue of fear. Hasan Ucarsu’s “…the city of anachronistic nostalgia, Istanbul…” (2003) celebrates his and Derin’s hometown of Istanbul, a city rich in contradictions and layers. Our adaptation of Claude Debussy’s “Bilitis”, a collection of 12 sensual poems attributed to Sappho, dreams of desire. Finally, Michael Fiday’s “Nine Haiku” (2007) is one of our favorite pieces to perform and sets works by 8th century poet Basho with flashes of powerful images, dreams that come into focus for only a moment before they vanish.
