Electric Dreams

Dumbshow’s explosive new play inspired by the ideas in Naomi Klein’s ground breaking book The Shock Doctrine.

Rose can’t remember the first 18 years of her life. What happened to her?

Seeking to unravel this mystery she turns investigator, piecing together her history from fragmented memories, documents and dreams.

Using live music and video, Electric Dreams journeys from 1950’s Canada to the Iraq war; but does exploring the past offer a warning for the future?
