An auditory trip to a world without sleep
A world in which we no longer sleep. A tech giant offers us anti-sleep technology and determines our destiny. Without ever getting tired, we can always stay awake.
Time is won and dreaming is a thing of the past. Dreams infect our brains with erratic thoughts. In this waking world people are patient and full of community.
Yet there is a man in society’s society who has no control over this anti-sleep technology. He is the only one who still sleeps and dreams. This shaman of the new age appears irresistible to artists, writers and musicians, because he can tell people what they would dream if they slept. He becomes a visionary for the interwoven society, and with it: a threat to the system.
The prototype of the new person is given shape in this visual performance. The audience goes on an auditory trip in which the boundary between people and technology, between what you hear, see and think becomes increasingly unclear and ominous.
A dystopia that may be shockingly close.
