About

Electric Dreams is the story of a teenage boy, lost be- tween virtual worlds that unexpectedly appear and disappear. Between the virtual paradise of his gaming and torrents of insignificant news feeds, he begins to forget to exist and starts blending with the shadows of his room, becoming himself a projection. Will he make it out of the labyrinth of illusions and impatience in one piece? Five singers and 15 musicians accompany our teenager through the schizophrenic world of imaginary images that surround the humdrum events of our daily lives. An adventure that throbs to the beat of Wagnerian themes played by a brass band or to synthetic sounds reminiscent of a Game Boy.
