The Dreaming of Trees is a poetic and contemplative audio experience, designed for headphones, which invites the listener to lose themselves and find themselves through a contemplative encounter with a forest of the imagination. Originally written as a live forest performance for the Taller de Investigación Teatral (Mexico) (2017), the texts of the Dreaming were reconceived for audio in a collaboration between writer Deborah Templeton (aka Middleton) and composer Julio d'Escriván (2018). Templeton's poetic texts were written in the remote, indigenous region of Guna Yala in Panama, and the text is infused with the spirit of traditional Guna ecology and cosmology. The work is designed to function as a meditative experience, and to enable listeners to contemplate our deep and essential interdependence with trees.
