A live and pre recorded dream trance performance and video experience by Lisa Anita Wegner.
Co-created and directed by Ciaran Federico. Broadcast with Zoom through OBS Studio.
As a Mad and disabled public artist and I am committed to the idea of art that is accessible and eliminates barriers of poverty and disability that too often get in the way of underserved communities experiencing art.
I create immersive universes in which to play, and invite the audience into them with me so that I can share the overriding theme of my work, which is
liberation through dreaming.
I believe everyone is born an artist until the world knocks it out of them.
My work encompasses films, large-scale art installations, performances, disruptions and social experiments.

During the pandemic, like everyone, I have been living on Zoom.
My current project Intangible Adorations Caravan is in residency with The City of Toronto and combines live performance, film, and an immersive environment for the audience that engages all of the senses. As a travelling event, it appears in unexpected locales, adding the element of surprise.
As a lifelong performer and filmmaker I recycle images and costuming.
I have been experimenting and performing on Zoom.
I love to disrupt and astonish on a platform everyone is already on!
Come see Liberation Through Dreaming: WE All Live In A Zoom Room.
Watch me make the mundane marvellous with an online performance.
Presented by OBS Studio in collaboration with Ciaran Federico.
My body of work explores the possibilities of Madness as a source of communal activation; and I believe Liberation Through Dreaming is another site of world-dismantling potentiality and the perfect way to share my vision and work during the pandemic and beyond.
