4 prepared dreams (for Tony Conrad, Annie Dorsen, April March and Jonathan Caouette)

For 4 Prepared Dreams, FIAF commissioned Joris Lacoste to create four scripted dreams for four artists (Tony Conrad, Annie Dorsen, April March et Jonathan Caouette), 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.
