Hypnagogia is the experience of the transitional states to and from sleep: the hypnagogic and the hypnopompic states of consciousness. The related words from the Greekare agōgos “leading, inducing”, pompe “act of sending”, and hypnos “sleep”.
from Wikipedia

The intention of this performance is to induce such a hypnagogic state in the artists, who will then transfer that into a creative act live for the audience. It is also an attempt to lure the consciousness of spectators into a state of mental fluidity, inducing the creative elements of mind to run wild; a place and time set-apart from everyday reality.

To achieve a hypnagogic state, the artists Leah Rees and Aaron Knapp, will alternate between a bed and an easel; one artist drawing and the other sleeping. To the side of the main stage will be a table of  spectators, seven VIPs with bells; the chiming of which causes the artists to switch places and other scene changes.

Chemical Marriage is fortunate to be joined by Lexington based drone artists, Everyone Lives Everyone Wins, whose presence will aid to the creation of dreams.  The vibration and tone these musicians bring will realign the very atoms and molecules within, easing the transition to and from Hypnagogia.

This Performance will be a one-time only event. Tickets available online or at the door. Seating is limited.
