Dream interpretations and re-imaginings in the films of Deborah Levy and Jane Thorburn, Mieke Bal and Michelle Williams Gamaker, Daria Martin, Catherine Yass. With a reading by Deborah Levy.
In Freud's Lost Lecture, the writer Deborah Levy imagines a lost lecture written by Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, accompanied by the dream-like images of the film-maker Jane Thorburn. In One of the Things that Makes Me Doubt (2010-11), artist Daria Martin returns to her late grandmothers dream diaries, spoken through the voices of the actors and collaborators of Martin's films. The artist Catherine Yass shares her dream recollections as video diary in Waking Dream (2008).
Deborah Levy will give a reading relating to Freud's Lost Lecture, and will be in conversation with Jane Thorburn and Catherine Yass about the legacy of Freud's dream analysis for creative reinterpretations of the unconscious mind.
Tickets can be purchased here.
