'Dreams' is a installation of dance films and photography based on Jamie's dreams. As a way to confront her nightmares she recreated some of the peculiar, surreal, and unforgettable successions of images, ideas, emotions and sensations that occurred during sleep. The world of dreams is intimately and intricately connected with our own, but is completely unpredictable. In dreams we are not afraid of taboos; we do not question what is reasonable, proper, polite. We play with optical and magical illusions, and with the manipulation of gravity, space, time, and light, to create an atmosphere in which the boundaries of reality are blurred. Just as in a dream, You will not necessarily understand the logic of what happens, but - we hope - will connect to it on a deeper level, something lying beneath the logic of the everyday.
