I lay my dreams at your feet/ Tread softly for you tread upon my dreams

The World At My Feet was a collaboration between Project Phakama UK, Teater Tetas and the British International School Jakarta. For two months in 2010 both Project Phakama (7 participants and 3 artists) and Teater Tetas independently explored ideas about recycled worlds, stories and dreams and joined together for a 14-day residency at the British International School Jakarta to create a performance at BIS, Gedung Kesenian Jakarta and Trento Free School. The project was supported by the British International School, WorldTheatre and Gedung Kesenian Jakarta.

The performance explored worlds where islands were made of rubbish, stories that washed up along the shore, and hope that falled from the skies, to ask the audience “what will you do to survive”?

The performers investigated what separates us and what brings us together and what is the value of human life in a world where people are disposable.
