The Dalí Project is a puppet exploration of Salvador Dalí’s embrace of the subconscious, The Dalí Project transports the audience from a contemporary reality into a blurred world of fantastical creatures and deep underlying messages. The piece mirrors Dalí’s multifarious methods of art-making by using various types of puppetry, as well as different mediums within the piece – puppetry (Bunraku, Rod, Shadow, and more), choreography, projections, found objects, unique set/furniture design, exploratory mood music and sound effects. You can see more informations on our show page.
The Dalí’ Project is influenced in part by a previous production, Sleep/Sommeil (2006) developed and built by Serra Hirsch and Matt Jackson. Below are images from that project.
