DIALOGUES
Personalities from many different walks
of life are paired on stage with a psycho-
analyst and invited to personally respond to
the painted dreamscapes of Carl Jung’s Red
Book. The imagery and themes that emerge
from this interaction with Jung’s manuscripts
serve as the starting point for a freewheeling
dialogue between guest and analyst.
