Dream Body Body Building choreographs lucid dreamwork and other territories where the unconscious touches the conscious. It’s a piece that sculpts the imagined and felt experiences of performers and audience alike.

Riding on a soundscape performed live by the Bucharest-based artist Lala Misosniky, performers enter dream states where they navigate imagined landscapes. These dream environments become vivid on stage through movement, sound, and language, all carefully crafted to create positive biofeedback in the audiences’ bodies. It’s an unexpected and nuanced sensory adventure.

Dream Body Body Building is created in collaboration with performers Laurel Atwell, Madeline Best, Justin Cabrillos, and Takemi Kitamura. Lighting is by Madeline Best in collaboration with Shana Crawford. Sound is by Lala Misosniky, and set by Laurel Atwell.

Dream Body Body Building is supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute and was developed through residencies at AREAL / space for choreographic development in Bucharest and Dance Alliance’s Lift Off Residency in New York City.
