In Dreams... is an extraordinary theatrical experience. It is a performance written for four actors, musicians and audience members who move freely in space.

Based on Delmore Schwartz's brilliant short story, it tells the tale of a 21-year-old boy who dreams that he's sitting in a New York cinema. A cinema where scenes from his parents' date are screened.

It is a non-linear journey through the world of dreams, pieces of memory, fear, hopes and reveries. And through the world of music created by Krzysztof Kaliski. The play was directed by Magda Szpecht, one of the most interesting and unconventional directors of the young generation.

The main award at the 8th Koszalin Youth Confrontations "m-theatre" 2017 was given by the jury for 'creating a separate form where theatre and installation meet, creating a sphere of freedom and inviting the viewers to search for their own rules of participation'.

The play was created as part of the project NEW MUSIC IN NEW THEATRE.
