A Colossal of Unusual and Visionary Art
THE DREAM MERCHANT SHOW
Written and directed by Dores Sacquegna

"I dreamt of you. Do you want to be my dreamer?
You will dream that you are a godness and I will construct a world in your image and likeness.
You will dream a body and I will give you its' essence.
You will dream fear of having been found
I will dream the joy of having found you
You will dream of cult objects and I will sell them to the highest bidder
We will both dream in this Spring that is budding
How thin the thread is that separates reality from dream
Remember? Everything began with Shakespeare…
He yes was a real dreamer!
I am only a dream merchant…"

The show of unusual and visionary art (second edition) this year is a tribute to the world of an imaginary collective and the greatest dreamer of all times, William Shakespeare, who said that "men are made of the same substance as dreams”.
And so the curator (whose role in the show is the director) has made the casting , selecting dreamers for the first and second episodes of this extraordinary exhibition-colossal.
"Do you want to be my dreamer?" is a question that started a sort of sensorial net-work between the cast and the director. (Superstar Cameo, young talented performer) united and diverse in the ritualistic interventions in the two cinematographic parts.
The art gallery changed into a film set, decorated with "cult objects", i.e. the art-works of the participants.

The entire colossal features two live actions created by two performers, four cameos (set designers, directors, artists) and the cast of the dreamers from the first and second episodes.

Performers: Federico Cozzucoli and Massimiliano Manieri;
Cameos: Sergio Gotti, Matteo Soltanto, Sarah Cirać, Edoardo Winspeare, Barbara De Matteis. Cast Dreamers (take a look on list artists 1st and 2nd episode).

During the first episode the artist Federico Cozzucoli (Messina, 1972) will be performing live with the performance "Simonia2. The purchase of a dream: to become an artist". Visitors will pay for building a work under the direction of performers for the occasion wearing vestments that for years they emphasize his art. The artwork will be on display in the gallery, just like any other real artist, with the possibility of be-ing sold during the remainder of the show.

Superstars: Matthew Barney, Erwin Olaf, Ugo Nespolo, Eugenio Recuenco.
