Synopsis

Dreamless is a two-act play, the first act is a one-man show inspired by the letter Sergio Urrego left before he died. In a parallel world, after Sergio dies, he is forced to live the same day as an actor being watched by an eternal theater audience. In the second act, An angel decides Sergio’s torment has been enough, he shall be reborn again, yet Sergio has grown used to the theater he resides in.

It is a physical exploration of the morbidity of society and its reflection, cause, and effect on an individual’s soul. The piece is accompanied by a documentary film piece of similar exponent cases.
