She She Pop have installed a fantastic, walk-through inner world in a tent made of projection screens and invite visitors to come and see what is going on inside their own heads. All kinds of teenage daytime and nighttime dreams, hopes, fears and nightmares come live in the Dream Lab. These dreams are produced live in 15-minute video clips, filmed with several cameras, hand-made special effects and lots of costume changes. Then they are projected onto the outside screens – based on the wishes of the individual dreamer from the audience and with his or her participation. The She She Pop members take on the role of laboratory assistants, improvising based on the road map dictated to them by the spectators’ fantasies. The dreaming spectator is both director of his or her own dream clip, as well as viewer and participant.
