‘We watched a film last night. And we can’t get it out of our heads.’
A couple wakes up in a filmic dream world. There, they re-create last night’s film and, in the process, work through the subtle power dynamics of their own relationship. Through this strange exploration, the man and woman question Hollywood norms and see each other anew.
Loosely inspired by Hitchcock’s Vertigo, Ferguson and Barton is about communication and miscommunication, about voyeurism, gender roles, and sensuality. Can we ever really know the person closest to us? Would we want to?
