Brief Description: Deanin’s Dreams was inspired by an interest in Cabalistic mysticism, ritual magic and dream symbolism. It involves a sleeping Deanin, wose dreams are gradually unravelled by a mysterious Prince. The story achieves its resolution through the characters’ active participation in the world of dreams. The apparent playful abstractions and the accompanying images belie their structured composition.
