Lively Dreams (2008)

Music soundtrack and sound design for Lively Dreams, in collaboration with Ivan Franco.

The project is a multimedia dance performance by coreographer Lígia Teixeira and digital artist Ivan Franco – it premiered in Lisbon on November 2008 as part of the Temps D’Image festival.

Lively Dreams

Lively Dreams is a performance that aims to explore the dramaturgic potential of the dream recreation, aiming to shape images and sensations of an intense dream and make them part of a parallel world, that exists without the logic and the rational demands that prevail in the real world.


In Lively Dreams the performer develops a narrative through his performance in different interactive environments. A motor of narration of dreams is created, enabling a dialog between the interactive scenography and the performer.”
