About the work

The Native American Indians believe that the night air is full of dreams, both good and bad. A dream catcher, made of a hoop of willow and decorated with feathers and bones etc, is hung over the bed of the sleeper. The good dreams pass through the hoop while the bad dreams get tangled in the dream catcher and perish with the first light of the new day.

First performed at the CoMA Summer School 2006 by the Fidelio Trio
