A dream play
by August Strindberg
Versatile theater, Damascus, Syria
A Dream Play is an expressionistic drama built on a montage of scenes following the journey of a central character. The Daughter of Indra is a goddess who comes down to earth in the form of a beautiful woman to find out why humanity is so discontent.
The scenography focuses on the negative spaces of the stage as a present part of the scenery statics, and the intertwining between scenes sequences to simulate a dream atmosphere.
The first scene starts before the audience enter the auditorium, to employ the Dream structure.
