What dream do we take part in when we watch a play? Have you ever woken up from a dream you didn’t know you were in? How does art challenge us to dream of selves and worlds beyond those we already know? Come dream, explore, and play our way through these big questions with director Jenny Koons, Professor Jenny Mann, Director of Special Artistic Projects Stephanie Ybarra, and cast members from the Mobile Unit’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, including Marinda Anderson, Leland Fowler, Christopher Ryan Grant, and Carolyn Kettig.
At heart, Shakespeare’s Dream is a cultural mash-up of classical myth, English folklore, inside jokes, and images from the bustling life of his own extraordinary city. Together, we’ll explore how this “rare vision” continues to speak to our city, community, and each of us in ways both wonderful and unexpected.
Audience members at this event will be invited to move from their seats and interact with artists and one another. Individuals of all abilities are encouraged to attend and will be accommodated.
