ED2012 Theatre Review: Kaya – Dream Interpreter (Kaya)
“I was born under the star of change,” claims Kaya, somewhat obtusely, in the admittedly visually impressive pre-roll that precedes his appearance on stage. More a lecture than a piece of theatre, this show sees Kaya explain his theory of dreams. If the idea of dream interpretation is already too far-fetched for you, Kaya’s confusing use of English and seemingly made-up terminology (what is an “aspect” or a “polarity,” please?) won’t help, as it goes wholly unexplained and so buying into his theory is somewhat difficult. Other audience members seemed convinced, however, as their dreams were interpreted, but to me it all sounded like faux-scientific psychobabble. This show won’t be converting anyone soon: definitely not for cynics.
Assembly George Square, 2-27 Aug (not 13, 21), 10.00am.
