STORYTELLING AND MUSIC | “Tell Us Your Dreams” at VALSA | Penha de França | FREE-2€

May 18, 2019 @ 18:00 - 23:00


“All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream…”
Edgar Allen Poe.

Thanks, Eddie.
Speaking of dreams, have you been having some strange ones lately? Oh, man — we have. Come to think of it, we can’t remember any dreams that weren’t strange. Yet, at the time, they made total sense…
Anyway, here’s what the organizers of “Tell us your dreams” say:
“Have you been dreaming of a dreamy night?
Come to Valsa on May 18 and share your dreams with us. It will be a relaxed atmosphere, a welcoming one, and one where we hope to find the threads that link us as we slumber. Maybe one of you tells of a dream of a cat attacking your face, and a stranger in the audience suddenly remembers his own cat-attack dream and jumps on stage to share.

Linda Koncz, one of our storytellers, has a strange profession: recording dreams. In the last few years, she has walked up to people in parks and galleries and videoed them while they told her the secret realities of their minds as they slept soundly in their beds. There have been dreams of time travel and rats eating bowels and candy falling from the sky. To date, she has documented over 2,000 people, and now she wants you.

And if you don’t come for the dreams, come for the dreamy music: Desmarques will play a set, as will Catapulta.
There will be sweet n’ salty n’ dreamy finger food that will give a kick of energy to your subconscious by Tatiana Carvalho.

We will have two special treats for the brave dream storytellers: an artist (Lucas Almeida) will interpret some dreams live, and a science experiment will take place as well by Carlotta Premazzi.

In between dreams will be socializing, so come just to hang, listen, cheer people on, think about the deep hidden meaning of that recurrent dream of your teeth falling out (you have that one too right?).”

Time travel, rats eating bowels, candy falling from the sky, the threads that link us as we slumber, and sweet ‘n’ salty finger-food?
Well, we’re in.

FREE with 2€ annual membership.
