2 May: Dream Logic
what if we take organic structures, such as the dream logic seriously
to re-think our relationship to our environment:
the structures that we build, the nature and each other?

3 May: Urban Environment and Mental mapping
how can we re-imagine our urban environment departing from
an organic approach to space?

PoroCity by Andrea Božić and Julia Willms | TILT is a performance as a journey based on mapping dreams into special architectural locations. The familiar but elusive logic of dreams merges with everyday reality and, in their overlap, a third space emerges – a porous space we do not know yet. A space where anything is possible.

PoroCity weaves the dreams collected from various people into a larger dream narrative. Two performers alias ‘dreamers’ lead the audience through a labyrinth of spaces and map the dreams as though they take place in the here and now. PoroCity moves through a series of special architectural buildings as a living organism, in Amsterdam and further, such as Burgerweeshuis designed by Aldo van Eyck, Frascati Theatre and other iconic locations. Each location is a unique experience where the dreams, the location, the building, the audience and the space itself are woven into each other and become part of the performance. The whole series becomes a performance in itself: a unique journey through the city.

Until spring 2019, PoroCity will appear on a series of special and unexpected locations in Amsterdam, Netherlands and internationally.
