we dreamt of utopia and we woke up screaming by Yasmina Reggad
The long-term research piece we dreamt of utopia and we woke up screaming saw the light back in 2016 and its first chapter a common consent to listen. a collective dissent of interpretation has taken on manifold forms ever since.
Drawing on the liberation movements' broadcasts aired by the Algerian national broadcasting company (RTA) in the 60s and 70s, this polyglot and polyphonic production echoes Yasmina Reggad's journey through the worlds of ideas and ideals of that time.
For Moussem Cities: Algiers, Yasmina created two new versions of this ongoing project at Kaaistudio's: a durational performative installation and a performance on 21 & 22.02.
