In a few weeks, on September 2nd, “Summer Dream, Fall Asleep” will have its premiere at Nordic Music Days, Faroe Islands.
“Summer Dream, Fall Asleep” is a theatrical fantasy created by Lasse D. Hansen, Mathias Madsen Munch, Rakel Helmsdal and Anna Schulin-Zeuthen.
In the writing and developmental stages, the creators worked with young musicians from the Music School in Tórshavn at a workshop during the fall of 2020, exploring shapes of surrealistic dreams and life-changing nightmares.
The young musicians worked as story artists, music artists and stages artist in this process, co-writing, co-composing and co-staging experiences from their own dreams and nightmares into stage magic.
“Summer Dream, Fall Asleep” is inspired and based on an original storyline written by Faroese author Rakel Helmsdal. At this concert, the final piece will have its premiere.
