The dream is the liberation of the spirit from the pressure of external nature, a detachment of the soul from the fetters of matter.Sigmund Freud, The Interpretation of Dreams

The Dream Work (2014) was conceived through the collective efforts of seventeen local, national and international artists over a period three months. Inspired by Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams, the Collaborative Artists Company used his philosophy on the construction and analysis of dream compositions to create a new live work.

  • Roisin Laffen – dancer
  • Tobi Omoteso – dancer
  • Aliina Lindroos – dancer
  • Aisling Flynn – actor
  • Miriam Needham – actor
  • Daniel Reid – composer
