Bright Day – Dreaming Together

Chan Kwun-fee, Fiona Lee and AK Kan

The experimental participatory experience Bright Day – staged in November and December 2022 – invited the audience to be central participants in a co-created waking dream.

Over a period of a week, cross-disciplinary Hong Kong artists Chan Kwun-fee, Fiona Lee and AK Kan collaborated with the audience on a two-part exploratory journey that delved into the city’s collective unconscious.

The first part of the journey was conducted individually by the audience at home. The second part – Dreaming Together – involved a group experience at Freespace. Part dream, part waking reality, Dreaming Together took place within a constructed environment of soundscapes and imagery. This video offers a condensed look at this immersive communal journey.

Bright Day is the second production in the West Kowloon Future of Performance series.
