metaMORPHEOsis

Synopsis

Which part of us wakes up when dreaming 6 years in a whole life on average? Two hours per day? Just a piece of dream lasts between 5 and 20 minutes…

And in a dream, what remains and what fades off? 

 

A couple of scientists seek to go deep inside the world of dreams using experimental tests with animals. They consider that it is possible to take them back in time; they think that you can control the periods of sleep by using a pill so you could work longer and earn more. The experiments in the laboratory run in unexpected ways. Dreams come and go in a dance following the rhythm of enigmatic whispers. Morpheus is Arianna’s red thread. The Minotaur is the ghost of a child who is really the dog Cerberus. Nothing is as shown. How to leave the labyrinth?

 

The piece was born from one idea: the myth of Morpheus, the vast ocean of dreams. It runs through fantastic situations and archetypical spaces. On this background several stories appear in a trip of solitude, love, treachery and war.
