Program Notes

More than a third of the dreaming population reports having had at least one flying dream. While anyone can have them, they tend to occur in people who are especially creative and imaginative. Of particular interest are lucid dreamers, those who are actually aware they are dreaming and can then control their actions while inside the dream.

Among the Clouds takes us into the minds of these lucid dreamers as they drift off to sleep and wake up in a dream where they own the skies.
