Presented by Nat Norland

  1. A. G. Rizzoli, a Californian architect, draws a portrait of his mother, for her birthday. He draws her 100 foot tall, with a slanted roof and a sharp spire.
  2. Elon Musk oversees the first test flight of the SpaceX Starship system. The plan is to reach Mars within ten years.
  3. Our dreams have gone wrong. I don’t know why. I don’t know how to fix it.

Dreamsick melds poetry and storytelling to weave ideas of angels, cities and possible futures. It’s a solo show about growing up and getting lost. Except that some of it isn’t true, and some of it is true but only in dreams, and the performer keeps trying to turn into a building. They keep doing it. It’s getting to be a problem.

This project is supported through a Mead Fellowship awarded by University of the Arts London.
