Dream State

Sharing is caring!

Enter the Dream State, a setting temporarily separated from other realities through sound and vision.

Saturday, July 31, 7:00PM - midnight

Using projected light, the environment stimulates the eye and the movements of others affect your experience in this shared environment. The music is unlike anything you have heard. Is it from the distant future or distorted echoes of past dreams?

Enjoy a comfortable seat, relax with a beverage, and ponder, while among others lost and found in the Dream State.
