Watching the world through his aquarium, Owen Moon’s imagination begins to seep into his everyday life.

When reality starts to shake his dream world, Owen submerges himself deeper into a fantasy full of fish, space and MTV.

A boy falls in and out of sleep, and as his sleep becomes deeper and longer, the stresses and strains take their toll, and his family begin to drift apart.

Some Of The Moments We Haven’t Forgotten

“Dreaming ties all mankind together,” Jack Kerouac
Choreographer/Director Christine Devaney
Music composed and played by Robin Mason
Devised by Christine Devaney, Robin Mason, Hayley Earlam, Adam Sloan, Neil Price and Kelly McCartney

From nothing but listening and breathing together, unfolds a series of moments, that have no meaning until you watch and share these moments. This work evolved through playing and dreaming together.

Touring across Scotland, the triple bill opens on Friday 20 March in Mull and finishes at the School of Contemporary Dance in Dundee on Monday 6 April.
