Freespace Fest, Hong Kong: Forest Fringe Will Make Your Dreams Come True, 2013


Originally created for Latitude Festival 2013, Forest Fringe Will Make All Your Dreams Come True is an exercise in participatory cinema. Passers-by are invited to provide us with descriptions of vivid dreams they can remember having. We then take these dreams and turn them into silent movie dream sequences, filmed with a silent super8 camera. Each short film is directed by a different artist and involves performers, props, costumes, smoke machines and other effects supplied by Forest Fringe. The dreamer is also invited to play the role of the protagonist in their own dream.

We were invited to recreate the piece for the West Kowloon Cultural Districts Freespace Festival, a free weekend-long event taking place on the site of what will one day be the largest cultural district anywhere in the world. To do so we worked with a group of around a dozen local students and young people, who were both directors and performers for the project. The project was led by Forest Fringe artists Abigail Conway, Andy Field, Ira Brand and Richard DeDomenici.
