"The Dream" is a collaboration between singer/songwriter Dana Falconberry and Michelle Thompson Ulerich. In 2018 the piece appeared at Dixon Place (NYC), Factory ArtSpace (Queens), ShapeShifter Lab (Brooklyn), Theorist Fest (Austin, TX), and Arts On Site (NYC). Michelle partnered up with Quinn Wharton to create a film of the duet in Brooklyn. The music is from Dana's album "The Lowering Night", and the duet focuses on the ideas of dreams. One dancer is approaching and leading the other dancer into a dream state. She is taking her and allowing her to explore things she can't experience in reality. The "sleeping" dancer is grateful and indulges in the experiences. The duet is liquid and sensual, and experiments with the idea of conjuring up mirages and images for the dancers to witness and touch.
