Dreaming Machines

Noon Hour Target Practice at the Funny Farm by Esther Warkov
Noon Hour Target Practice at the Funny Farm by Esther Warkov
In dreams, we imaginatively break the rules of time and space. Events pile upon one another, sequences are scrambled, impossible encounters occur between things and beings. Dream narratives overwhelm linear time with a flood of images only nominally under our control. This sense of dreaming as the free and reality-bending arrangement of images pertains also to the world-forming possibilities of art works. This exhibition explores examples from the collection of artists drawing upon the metaphor of dreaming in their work, as an autonomous generator of possible events and imaginary collisions.

Drawn from the CCAG collection, this exhibition of dreamlike imagery features work from artists Carol Fraser, Joshim Kakegamic, Patrick Landsley, Stephen B. MacInnis, Dodi Morris, Norval Morrisseau, Herbert Siebner, Norman Takeuchi, and Esther Warkov.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
