Once there was a heart and it was reeling
Turning on its axis, withstanding the laws of nature
The heart was a fragile creature, misguided about the way things really are
The heart put itself into many things
It put a lot into you
That heart was mine
That heart was foolish,
and it was mine
“In My Dreams is a liminal performance that I can’t quite grasp the meaning of. I try to capture the essence of it in sounds, words, and choreography but it continuously disintegrates and rearranges itself into new constellations which are unrecognisable to me.
At first, it seemed to be a performance about transcending identity for both performer and audience, but perhaps it’s actually about connections between people? Or maybe it’s about the ephemeral nature of being, and how time and people are non-linear? At times, I wonder if it’s just about love.”
Please arrive early for a pre-show experience.

Anne Kjær is an artist and wanderer, originally from Copenhagen and now based in Glasgow.
Her work is interdisciplinary including performance, film, installation, and sound art. Central to her practice is the body – its sensory apparatus, movements, stories, and its desire and capacity for communication and connection. Recent explorations include methods of collaboration and neurodivergent choreographic practices. Forthcoming research into innovative sound and music practices bridging the gap between hearing and d/Deaf artists is being funded by RCS.
Anne’s practice resides in a state of constant flux, responding to the stories of the people and places that surround her.
