Dreaming the Stage is an innovative experience, co-created by Daniela Simmons and Domenico Agresta, that combines the social dreaming matrix (SDM) and J.L. Moreno’s modality on dream-work.
The Matrix is a container and a process too. During a matrix we can observe how our mind is building new thoughts using the free association and the amplification. In this sense, we can easy think about the creation of an icon that represents the matrix and the meaning or question that the collective is creating sharing the dreams.
The Matrix through the free associations of dreams observes itself and the collective find the origins thanks to the creative role of amplification and connection between dreams. In this sense we can think as a double foundation myth.
Because the dream is a foundation myth the matrix becomes an experience in which people can create and experience the possibility to act and play into the Hyper theme of the matrix.
Our hypothesis is that the matrix becomes a special dreamcatcher thanks to the dream-work and new thoughts generated from the matrix too. The place and the process are the field in which the dreams can be acted and discovered in a different point of view.
In this workshop, the matrix as a dreamcatcher means to demonstrate and use Moreno’s approach to dream-work through action methods. Because the SDM is an action research methodology, we want to observe and work starting from the matrix to acting the theme (the dream icon) because acting a dream means offering an alternative to the verbal account; in fact, the action techniques enable the clients to understand their dreams by themselves, instead of being analyzed.
