School of Dreams: Poetry and the Unconscious



Manisha Anjali




The poet must perform between two realms – the dream realm and the waking realm. In order to unearth the mythological, illuminative and transportative potential of our subconscious, we must go to sleep or look out the window. In this workshop we will explore dreaming as storytelling practice, performance of symbology and tools for truth, play and deep engagement with narratives from our unconscious.
