For years now, they’ve been meeting in their dreams. In reality, they’ve never met. One wakes each morning and searches for the other. But the other wakes and remembers nothing of their dreams.
Eyes of a Blue Dog, based on a short story by Gabriel García Márquez, is an explosion of hopes ignited and extinguished.
We spent a month exploring this story all over New York City, in trains, grocery stores, museums, and more. We then pieced together what we found into a single performance. That collage of fantasy and reality is the foundation of this piece: a cyclical dream-play about love lost and found, sought and forgotten.
