Emerging from an innovative arts residency at York Correctional Institution for women in Niantic, CT, Dreamings is a multi-arts collaborative performance piece that connects those behind bars with those who are free by exploring incarceration through the lens of dreams. Women who have completed their sentence, along with family members of those currently incarcerated, perform along side the professional company members. Their writings, along with those of the women at York, have become basis for the script, the original songs by composer Leslie Bird, and the dances by the Judy Dworin Performance Ensemble that comprise the piece.
The show runs April 2, 3, and 4th at 7:30pm. General admission is $20, seniors and Let’s Go! Members are $10, and student tickets are $5. Tickets for Dreamings can be reserved through Charter Oak’s box office by calling 860.249.1207.
