Pillow Talk at Centaur Theatre
Pillow Talk, an essay on dreaming is the dreamy creation of renowned multi-disciplinary artist Dulcinea Langfelder. Centaur hosts this world premiere which transports theatregoers into the mystically surreal world of dreams and the unconscious. Seen through the ‘rapid lens movement’ of Langfelder herself, this one-woman show is a poignant, yet amusing exploration of life and imagination. Always starring in her own nocturnal play, the dreamer floats into an alternate reality, spawning a search for meaning in her waking life. Pillow Talk seeks to address inevitable questions about what dreams portend for everyday practical realities. March 29-April 24; www.centaurtheatre.com.
