Sinopsis: From the faraway land of San Francisco, California arrives a unique and enchanting performance—Poetry Nap—hosted by the esteemed literary and theatrical cultural association, ESPAI POE(Tic)!
A theatrical treat unlike any other… Lie down, relax, close your eyes, and drift away to poetry and music of the masters woven into magical, witty and immersive tales with your hosts from the dream realm, Lady & Lord Dosis.
Recline and cuddle with some of the most treasured poets from times past and present such as Pablo Neruda, Walt Whitman, Michael McClure, Mary Oliver, e e cummings, and Gary Snyder to name but a few.
Come indulge in an afternoon nap or an evening nap. Or both!
Poetry Nap, Chapter 1, The Nature of Love
Your hosts from the dream realm, Lady & Lord Dosis beckon you to step aboard for your maiden voyage on the Dandy Duchess, our gigantic hot-air balloon bed! The trade winds blow us to an enchanted island where deep discoveries delight.
Poetry Nap, Chapter 3, The Secret of Forgotten Stars
We merrily board the Dandy Duchess again, this time to soar up, up and away into outer space! What is our true celestial nature? What are Steorra? When do questions sound like answers? Can you have more than one eternity?
To lie down with comfort, please bring your own yoga or camping mats, quilts, pillows, pajamas and pals.
"Taquila inversa": Reverse Box Office
The reverse box office is an exercise of responsibility for the viewer: upon arrival we give you free entrance. Please enjoy the show and when the show ends you decide how much to pay. We hope that you take it as an opportunity to appreciate everything that is involved in the creation of artwork and travel from abroad, and adapt it to your economic situation. It is an attempt to reformulate the consumption of culture, to adapt our offer to all pockets and to create a direct communication channel between the public and the artist.
all by all and deep by deep
and more by more they dream their sleep
noone and anyone earth by april
wish by spirit and if by yes
Women and men (both dong and ding)
summer autumn winter spring
reaped their sowing and went their came
sun moon stars rain
- e e cummings
