LE CIRQUE DE LA NUIT: we like to dream big

What will you show us at The Dream Factory? Well, given the chance we'd show you a world filled with awe inspiring feats of danger, beauty and astonishment. We like to dream big! If you had a dream for the Calgary Arts scene, what would it be? Our dream would be one of support, encouragement and enthusiasm for artists of all walks of life. A scene that mutually supports it's new blood as well as recognizing those who have helped to shape it. Do you have a recurring dream? Well, there's that one where the clowns revolt and shoot the ringmaster straight through the roof of the bigtop with the stunt cannon. Strange that it always ends with me landing in a big pail of...

The ideas are still very much in a dream mode, but what you will find is an installation that looks at two sides of dreaming.
