Join us for the kickoff of the Dream Delivery Service’s residency at Understudy, including a brief reading of dreams Mathias Svalina has written for the service.
With the Dream Delivery Service, Svalina writes & delivers dreams to subscribers every day for a month. To nearby subscribers, Svalina hand-delivers the dreams—brief surrealist narratives he writes & encloses in small pink envelopes–to their doors, biking through the empty streets of Denver before dawn.
Svalina started the Dream Delivery Service 2014, hoping to devise a new sort of relationship with a reader, a new kind of reading intimacy. In addition to his delivery service, throughout November Svalina will meet visitors & transcribe their dreams to collect in The Big Book of Denver Dreams, & host events of embodied dream-logic in the Understudy space, bringing the personal framework of the dream into social settings:
11/16: The Denver Dream-In: Open-Mike Storytelling for Dreams
11/21: Dreameaning: A Night of Collaborative Dream Divination
11/30: The Dream Feast: Surrealist & Visionary Recipes to Close Out the Residency
This event is a part of the Dream Deliver Service’s November residency at Understudy. You can subscribe to a month of daily-delivered dreams at dreamdeliveryservice.com
Understudy is located at the Colorado Convention Center / Theatre District light rail stop near 14th and Stout. Look for the B-Cycle station next to the light rail tracks or Shantell Martin’s art bench.
