“With this singular proposition, Joris Lacoste has invented a new form of spectacle… Being half-asleep is no longer a lethargic state, but the very condition for perception and creation.” —Premiere (France)

Crossing the Line 2012
artist-in-residence Joris Lacoste presents 4 Prepared Dreams, a project involving four New York artists that explores hypnosis as an artistic medium.

For 4 Prepared Dreams, FIAF commissioned Joris Lacoste to create four scripted dreams for four artists, one each evening, who will experience their dream during a one-on-one hypnosis session with Lacoste. The performance is the dream experienced during the private hypnosis session, when the subject succumbs to the fiction Lacoste has constructed and provoked. The session will be followed by a post-performance interview—open to the public—between Lacoste and the artist about the experience.
