Dead Dream Machine: Teaser from Sean Gill on Vimeo.
Here's the skinny from the press release:
RAGING SQUID INK and ERIC SCHMALENBERGER are pleased to announce the world premiere production of Jake Thomas’ THE DEAD DREAM MACHINE, directed and choreographed by Rachel Klein with video art directed by Sean Gill. THE DEAD DREAM MACHINE will play a limited engagement at La Luz (135 Thames Street, Brooklyn, NY). Performances begin with previews Wednesday, September 18 and Thursday, September 19th and continue through Sunday, October 13.
In an abandoned theater on the outskirts of town, an experiment is being conducted--one which extracts dreams. But if this insane enterprise works, what dreams may come? Mad scientists, monstrous killers, tyrannical royalty, government witches and hipster occultists (and not one damn vampire or zombie) explode forth in this crazed horror anthology that incorporates song, dance, puppetry, aerial, magic and more to build an out of body theatrical experience.
The production stars Darlinda Just Darlinda (NYC Burlesque icon, Taylor Mac’s Lily’s Revenge) , Michael Cavadias (Wonderboys, The Citizens Band, Claywoman), Jillaine Gill (Makin' a Martini, Cut to Black), Chris Cipriano (Russell Curtis, Escape from Staten Island), Elena Delgado (House of Yes aerialist), Arden Leigh (“The Rules of Attraction: How to Get Him, Keep Him, and Make Him Beg for More”), Eric Schmalenberger (BANZAI!!!!!, Blunderland), David F. Slone, Esq. (The Love Show), and Ashley Springer (Teeth, Dare), and many more!
THE DEAD DREAM MACHINE plays the following regular schedule through Sunday, October 13:
Thursdays at 8 p.m.
Fridays at 8 p.m.
Saturdays at 8 p.m.
The show opens Friday, September 20. There are additional preview performances Wednesday, September 18 and Thursday, September 19, and a special closing night performance Sunday, October 13 at 8 p.m.
