Kim Carpenter - The Dream Show ( in & around A Midsummer Night's Dream )


A Midsummer Night’s Dream

I am a visual storyteller both in the visual and the performing arts.

I work instinctively from my imagination. Through my mind’s eye I collect images from my daily life and adapt or subvert them into whatever stories or themes I am currently exploring.

With A Midsummer Night’s Dream, I am Inspired by the ambiguity of Shakespeare's Dream Forest - with its mercurial fairies, mysterious insects and devious beasts who play hosts to the drug-induced lovers - overseen by the devilish Puck under the command of Oberon, King of The Fairies. It is a world enhanced by magic where time and space do not exist and is open to interpretation. Pure gold to the imagination.

Two previous personal experiences of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream have also informed my choices for this exhibition.
