The Alcove Theatre
Projected Voyages is a new and original devised work created by members of The Overcast Theatre Company in San Francisco. This piece of theatre explores scenes, conversations, music, lectures, experiments, and improvisation with the connecting themes of dreams, nightmares, and passing thoughts.
The production is split into two parts: one being a traditional theatre showcase and the second being a performance art installation. Audience members can expect to both sit back and enjoy an evening of live theatre and a night of interactions, sideshows, and participation all while walking amongst the performers.
This piece was created out of discussions, journaling, exploration of themes, established texts, memories, daydreaming, and the constant stream of pictures in our heads. Experimenting with such a universal theme that is dreams our possibilities for works is boundless.
Artistic Director Alejandro Torres was inspired to devise and curate the piece and to focus on dreams, as he believes them to be for him and endless source of inspiration and variations of looking at reality.
Expect to see dreams of happiness, new experiences, escape, murky perceptions of reality, variations of personalities, disturbing thoughts, discussions of humanity, lucid dreaming, projections, live video, and uncanny encounters.
You may even see your own dream realized.
