About The Sleepwatchers
"The Sleepwatchers" is inspired by the eponymous book by Dr. William Dement, M.D., Ph.D., the world’s leading authority on sleep, sleep disorders, and the dangers of sleep deprivation. Critically acclaimed and nominated for an Isadora Duncan Dance Award following its premiere in 2001, it is brought back to life for DSDT’s 30th anniversary home season.
“To try and resolve the irresolvable, say the unspeakable, is something only possible maybe in dreams (or in gesture, the non-verbal language of dance. Slater’s choreography is magnificent in this respect). The dancers manage to manipulate the sublime through the physical, depicting with their bodies the elusive nature of dreams, how by trying to capture them, you ensure their disappearance.” CRITICALDANCE.COM
