By Glen Neath and David Rosenberg

Sound by Max & Ben Ringham

Video work by Susanne Dietz

Produced by Fuel


You are invited to a lecture. You know that the subject is probably important and it would be useful to hear what the speaker has to say but you can’t keep your eyes open

You will fall asleep and you will dream

But you won’t be alone in your dream; everyone else will be there with you. And you will have a chaperone who knows the landscape and will attend to you. So nothing can go wrong...


Fiction is the second performance by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg using binaural sound and absolute darkness. It is an anxious journey through the sprawling architecture of our dreams and an exercise in empathy

Or it is an opportunity to get a 60 minute nap


Fiction is not suitable for insomniacs
