Did you know that singing birds can memorize a melody and repeat it while they sleep? And that, while they sleep and sing, their brain waves mirror those they have when they are awake? Similarly, could we take control of our dreams and change them? Some even say this ability can bring about change in the waken world by planting an idea or desire in the subconscious.
The Songbird Dreams of Singing is a 5-minute solo showcasing a giant bird nest. The dancer is in a liminal dreaming state, exploring and showing potential for change and self-growth. The piece is an ode to the power of dreams as a source of inspiration and manifestation, and a call to dream more, free oneself from a restrictive mental process, and opening oneself to new possibilities.
