Teasel Theatre – The Secret Life of Dreams

Dreams To Her Father teaser trailer from Teasel Theatre Company on Vimeo.

I worked with Teasel to produce sound design for The Secret Life of Dreams during a devising period in early 2013. The working title then was Dreams To Her Father. Despite a very productive period of development due to insufficient funding the piece has yet to be taken to full production.

The Secret Life of Dreams draws on a Carl Jung case study, social dreaming theories and a dark chapter in medical history. These themes are explored through a poignant, unsettling and surprisingly funny story which explores the intimate tragedy of a father grieving for his daughter against the background of the murder of thousands of vulnerable people by those appointed to care for them.
