Chawki&Runesson present their own interpretation of Leif Elggren’s & Thomas Liljenberg’s work Experiment with Dreams.

It consists of 200 letters addressed to political and business leaders, organisations, institutions and celebrities. The work of art is a reflection on the global social and economic situation. Please send us some money is the consistent and final message in all these letters. The phrase itself also embodies an idea of equality; haven’t we all collectively shared the thoughts of the American science fiction writer William Gibson, or the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, and haven't we all collectively created what others have created, if only in our imagination?

“Thus, letter is laid upon letter on the poetic map. One begins in a dream, a memory, a refrain, or a word in a completely different letter. New names and new roles grow out of other names and meetings. Leif and Thomas become one, become three, become four.”

Cia Runesson, performing artist, reads selected letters, and Hanna Chawki, musician, artist and poet, accompanies the readings with improvisations on the synth.
