A teaser for SOMNIUM, edited by the multi-talented Mr. Shawn Grey.

What dreams lurk beneath the surface of your waking thoughts? SOMNIUM knows. Restricted to a small platform, five “slumber-nauts,” aided by abstract objects and an instrument from the Land of Nod, trek through the hilarious and dangerous badlands of their own nocturnal transmissions. Conceived and directed by Omen Sade of Dramatic Space, this production makes use of theatrical techniques developed by international theatre company Papa27, formed in Paris in 2014.

Meet the Crew of SOMNIUM!
