About the Grant

$45,000 to support Dream of the Red Chamber: a performance for a sleeping audience (MAP 2012), a new play written and directed by Jim Findlay.

About the Project

Dream of the Red Chamber: a performance for a sleeping audience is conceived as a literal dream play, to be performed throughout the evening and into the early morning for the audience to experience while they fall in and out of sleep. The performance environment will advocate and facilitate sleep while a deeply ambient performance inspired by Cao Xueqin's seminal eighteenth-century Chinese novel Dream of the Red Chamber will be performed, which will gently shape and impact the audience's dreams.

Dream of the Red Chamberis written and directed by Jim Findlay. Collaborators include Joel Bassin, Jennifer Charles, Jeff Jackson, Maurina Lioce, Kate Moran, Liz Sargent, and Kate Valk.
