SOMNIUM: The Book of Dreams and Nightmares
One Night Only– ArtScene Showing
Travel back in the current of time to experience the 2022 SOMNIUM show one more time before it is vaporized into the myth of memory. Explore the world of dreams and nightmares again, or discover the magic of the award-winning new media public art production SOMNIUM for the first time.
Somnium: The Book of Dreams and Nightmares opens the door of your senses, drawing you into an immersive, transportive multimedia exploration of a dark, deep and surreal world inside the subconscious. Join extremophile minds from across the world for an unforgettable journey through the corridors of creation: shadow and light, desire and repulsion, evolution and arrival.
