This fall, Theater, Dance & Media will present Strindberg’s A DREAM PLAY, adapted and directed by Daniel Kramer, at Farkas Hall. Daniel is a Visiting Professor in TDM and an award winning theater, opera and dance director based London where he is Artistic Director of English National Opera. In Kramer’s pared down, physically aggressive interpretation, Agnes, daughter of the Gods, snaps through space and time, witnessing and experiencing the struggles of daily life under the illusory Dream of Happiness.
