Daydreams from Yesterday
Live-Performance Nature Documentary
Daydreams from Yesterday is a multi-layered experiential performance between a place and its community. The film takes the form of a living guidebook that seeks to enrich the viewer’s experience of our communal parks by compiling and weaving the past and present upon a single plane. It begins its investigation by wandering through the historical and contemporary voices that have shaped the lands around the Milwaukee River. Along the way, it dives deeper into the woods looking closer in at the plants and animals currently living in our backyards. Altogether, the film and its presentation look to draw us closer to the beautiful public lands within Milwaukee, and to the community of conservationists and stewards working to preserve and grow the garden in the heart of our city.
