Performance: Perchance To Dream

  • This event has passed.

March 30, 2023 @ 6:00pm 7:00pm

In conjunction with our special exhibit The Shape of Dreams, we invite you to celebrate the comedy of dreams and nightmares, with an elaborate production featuring Roxanne Faye and company.

Dreams can be wonderful things.
Dreams can be terrible things.
Dreams can be wonderful, terrible things.
Dreams are the things in our deepest selves that we cannot control.
They come unbidden.
They leave too soon.
They can be frightening.
And- they can be downright hysterical.

Perchance To Dream is a little taste of what happens when our dreams refuse to stay safely within sleep. What happens when those dreams take on a life we never imagined? Through the words of great writers- including Dalí himself- we will take you on a short but absurd journey into the sheer panic that is the dream state.

Location: The Dalí Museum’s Will Raymund Theater
