About the Event

Dream’d in a Dream
With live music

Meet Seán Curran, whose dance journey has taken him from Irish step dancing to lead dancer with Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company to the original cast of STOMP. Dream’d in a Dream is a result of another journey—one his company took to the far reaches of Central Asia as cultural ambassadors of the U.S. State Department. The work will transport us to a space where imagination and reality coincide in a landscape woven from the collected dream memories of the performers. This compellingly human work explores a journey from our various ancestral pasts towards Walt Whitman’s “City of Friends.”

Dream’d in a Dream was also inspired by the haunting and exquisite beauty of traditional Kyrgyz music, and created in collaboration with the Ustatshakirt Plus ensemble - visiting the United States for the first time with this tour - that will play live for this full-evening work. 

“Time spent with Seán Curran, his choreography and his dancers is usually like the dance equivalent of a night of invigorating conversation.” – The New York Times
