A ritualistic contemporary dance performance that dives into the depths of the subconscious, a revivalist movement that invites you to wander into the twilight zone of the mind.


Wakey-wakey is a contemporary dance performance which creates a psychedelic space that promotes transitions from one layer of the subconscious to another. It is inspired by trance as well as dreams, poems and emotional political texts.

The production team uses the structure of rituals to dive into the internal reality of the mind. However, the multi-disciplinary work reverses the direction of awakening, which leaves reality behind and plunges into the undercurrents of consciousness, into a noise that lies under everyday life and is only glimpsed in memories of nightly visions and lapses into reverie.

The dance performance is part of a revivalist movement that invites the viewer to wander into the shadowy realms of the mind. It explores a variety of issues ranging from political and religious revivalism to the death of the ego caused by psychedelic drugs or phenomena. Such states of mind are often described as an ability to see things in a new light or as the re-discovery of a lost truth. As a result, the reality one has left behind appears to be alien.
