"Dream on" Animation Project for the Broward Center for the Performing Arts

About the "Dream on..." Project


Creating the "Dream On" project is an honor as a visual artist and a theater lover. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is a place where dreams become reality and reality is transformed into a dream. When one is in the theatre and the show is on, it's a collective experience, and because the connection happens for a limited space in time, we desire to repeat it, so we come back; to dream again. In this way we are like lovers always longing for each other and always grateful for our return. Only when enough people passionately agree on a vision and act upon it does that vision become a reality, but it requires the dream to be big enough to be shared. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is a big dream that came true twenty years ago. A dream that came as a vision to create a space where free spirit and pure love collide, to repeat once again the daring flight. And the dream goes on, a pleasant, adventurous, sometimes challenging dream. As Calderón de La Barca wrote, Life is a Dream, and theatre is life, perhaps an illusion, definitely a mystery. It is never static, always flowing, morphing moment by moment into familiar and strange places and patterns. It is a shared communion, full of possibility and promise. Always, beyond our wildest dreams, we must "Dream On"!
