ABOUT

Heartbeat Reverie is a new creation for 6-12 year olds that poetically explores the dream-spaces between life and death.

 

Inspired by personal experiences, Heartbeat Reverie takes inspiration from the world of advanced medicine: from the sounds of the machines in a pediatric intensive care room, to the doctors’ notes and medical jargon, the piece explores deeper questions related to life, death, and the spaces in between.

A young boy falls asleep under anaesthesia before receiving a heart transplant. He journeys through a series of dreams exploring the wonder of childhood and his fear of hospitals. His mother's voice beckons him back to the waking world, where he receives a brand new heart.
