Also presenting:
ARCHEDREAM ( www.archedream.com )
ArcheDream are an archetypal mask theatre company, which uses ritual, movement and myth to present allegorical dramas. The inspiration for ArcheDream is derived from ancient rituals where the Devine mingled with Humankind. Their theatre uses various forms of dance, innovative music, multimedia projections, archetypal masks and costumes that are illuminated with ultra-violet light, accentuating the supernatural aspects to reveal the dreamscape as the action unfolds. ArcheDream is founded on the quality of the individual artist participating in a collaborative effort. They will be performing 2 scenes from their original performance "The Shamyn's Breath".

1 Giant Leap ( www.1giantleap.tv )
Featuring such incredible musicians as Baaba Maal from Senegal, Ashe Bhosle from India, Brian Eno from the UK, and visionary thinkers like Ram Dass and Kurt Vonnegut, 1 Giant Leap fuses documentary filmmaking, innovative audio/visual piece and a global cultural project to create something unlike anything you've ever seen before. Guided by the principal of illustrating "Unity through Diversity" two music producers travel the world recording and speaking with a wide range of people and piece together the common strands that exist underneath the surface.
