A “Vision” is an image or concept in the imagination…an image or series of images seen in a dream or trance, often interpreted as having revelatory or prophetic significance…the ability to anticipate possible future events and developments…Visions are the building blocks of dreaming, creativity, and imagination. Flashing imagery, seemingly unconnected, are assembled into new creations and revelations…

Visions: The Spirit of Dreams is a seemingly unconnected series of imagery; visions of motion, time, lust, fear and joy all come together to stimulate a unique experience for the viewer, as they assemble their own personal experience.

MOTION: the freedom of that first step…

TIME: grasping that perfect moment…

LUST: anticipation of the forbidden…

FEAR: overcoming self imposed limitations…

JOY: the realization of perfect balance…

The show starts at the beginning of the evening, as the room is slowly transformed into the mind of the dreamer, with unique characters creating a tableau of lurid images amongst the guests. The imagery is designed to create an air of illusion and unreality, mirroring the incredible performances of the aerialists, acrobats, tumblers, and contortionists, propelling the audience into a world of unlimited possibilities.


The Visions: The Spirit of Dreams CD release is scheduled for May 2016

Pop vocals and a quirky random instrumentation combine to create a surreal soundscape for the original soundtrack of Visions: The Spirit of Dreams.

Edgy guitars and unique sonic treatments fuse together to create a musical landscape mirroring the world of dreams performed live on stage. This epic landscape is fueled by pulsating beats, light strings and soaring vocals.

The Visions: Spirit of Dreams soundtrack is an original composition by Mike Meyer. Additional compositions for Out of Reach, Together, So Much More, Nightmare, Flux, and Finale tracks are by David Edward Jensen and Mike Meyer. Guitar performed by Mike Meyer.
