With the sea as a backdrop and imaginary point of departure, The Dreamers will take you on a journey through the history of Empire, via the curious and compelling events of the rubber industry and psychosurgery, to the Brazilian Amazon. Juxtaposing the bizarre and questionable tales of rubber pioneers Henry Wickham and Henry Ford with the brief and brutal era in the US of Dr Walter Freeman’s ‘Lobotomobile’ as well as fragments of personal conversations, this intimate piece prods at the heroic ideologies and sexist psychologies of the Industrial era that has shaped our own. It is about dreams. It’s about knowing when to let go.
