In the manner that dreams unfold and dance between fantasy and nightmare, Lurid Thoughts & Lucid Visions is a quest for the marvelous; delighting in the multitudinous self and the fantastical landscape of the sub-conscious mind.
With support from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, Wicked Sister was pleased to present free workshops to artists this past fall in areas of contact improvisation, floor acrobatics and butoh. Lurid Thoughts and Lucid Visions has emerged from a collaboration of participants of those workshops, company members and yet another delightfully wandering vision of the group's artistic director, David DeBlieck.
A cozy drawing room parlor with an oversized chaise lounge and victrola ebbs into a futuristic urban frontier littered with bicycle carcasses and an underworld inferno with bodies scaling a chain wall. A contemplative glen with a garden of eggs planted in soil seals the surreal imagery and fantastical movement put forward by the troupe. An original soundscape on accordion, pump organ and musical saw is a major force in the evening length production, presented live by Dreamland Faces. This latest show by an inventive group of more than 15 performers will be sure to intrigue, disturb and delight theatre goers.
