For TEST BED, a symposium on the vicissitudes of sleep, performer and folklorist Kay Turner presents #7 in a series of participatory performances exploring and reimagining the figure of the witch. Night Hags, cultural variants of which are found worldwide, come unbidden to interrupt dreams and cause frightening experiences of sleep paralysis. With help from dancers Katya Lazor, Lea Fulton and performer Angeli Sion, as well as audience members, Turner reveals new meanings of this hag. Perhaps, she is, in fact, your dream come true.
