Dreamcatcher 2017

Dreamcatcher- commission

I was commissioned by Peterborough’s Platform8/Jumped Up Theatre and it was devised by One to One Development Trust and I was asked to be part of the installation and to also write a poem for the project too.  The Dreamcatcher gathered people’s aspirations and dreams about the city of Peterborough through audio, film, creative interventions and social media. This was woven into an interactive digital art installation and Virtual Reality experience.

Artists from Jumped Up Theatre and myself gathered dreams from local school children, festival goers and shoppers over the summer of 2017 in open workshops.

“Absorbing, relaxing, mindful … Excellent. Loved it!”

The Dreamcatcher was launched on Wednesday 8th November 2017 at the Undercroft, Serpentine Green. Hampton, Peterborough at a ticketed event, and exhibited free from Thursday 9th to Saturday 11th November 4-8pm
