Surreal image of a human eye.

An immersive experience based on the classic play by August Strindberg

Directed by Mary Corinne Miller

What better way to face the absurdity of our own reality than to plunge ourselves into a waking dream? In this site-specific, immersive version of Strindberg’s classic Dream Play, audience members mingle with actors as they weave together a performance encompassing music, dance, and text. Together, they tell the story of Agnes, mischievous daughter of the God Indra, as she journeys to Earth in her quest to understand the human experience in all its messy, wild, joyful glory.

Tickets: $5 students and seniors, $15 general admission
