The Neo-Political Cowgirls in partnership with LongHouse Reserve present THE DREAMER
(A Midsummer Night’s Dream As Seen Through The Eyes Of A Young Girl) Directed by Kate Mueth and Josh Gladstone)
This reimagining of Shakespeare’s beloved play centers The Dreamer, a girl on the immediate cusp of womanhood. As we gaze through the lens of this modern girl’s psyche, we deep dive into the riches of her yet-to-come-out-of-the-shadows subconscious to explore power, identity, love, transformation, and the intensity of society’s patriarchal impression on young people’s spirits.
Shakespeare’s wild and chaotic sleep story presents an unfettered terrain upon which to ponder that which lies in the darkness of our world’s hope- the youth.
What awaits The Dreamer when she exits the moonlit forest of her existence to awaken to a new day’s dawning?
Dance, multi-genre music and vibrant design illuminate the magic of our girl’s dream and takes her through a bold journey of self discovery and ultimate transformation.
