Beautiful Dreamer in Hudon, New York

Beautiful Dreamer is a durational site-specific performance installation that inhabits the Great Hall of the Hudson Opera House. Evoking a dreamlike reflection of turn-of-the-century elegance, referencing the region's ties to whaling and maritime industries, and recalling performances and events that happened in the site in bygone eras, Beautiful Dreamer is an immersive performance that happens all around the audience, and is performed on a fifteen minute loop, without pause, for three hours during Hudson's Winter Walk Festival December 4, 2010.

Directed by Zach Morris and Tom Pearson

Designed, Created, and Performed by:Christopher Cummings, Zach Morris, Marissa Nielsen-Pincus, Tara O'Con, and Tom Pearson
