Laura Burucoa and Aliette Salama will explore in 2022-2023 the territory of dreams with the students of the Roger Vivier elementary school in Marolles-en-Hurepoix. The artists, familiar with both the CAC Brétigny and the Roger Vivier school, will conduct a series of workshops of different scales with the classes. With the students, they will create a video from scratch, from the collective writing of the script to the shooting and post-production. All the children of the school will thus be actors in “The Dream Team” project, each of them contributing to the creation of a collective dreamlike story. 

A 2018 graduate of the Haute École des Arts du Rhin, Laura Burucoa has focused on practices that take shape around the transmission of knowledge and the ways of creating history through video, performance, writing, and the design of collective situations. She became especially interested in the issues and modes of communicating, telling stories, and working together after a number of experiences as an activity leader for children at holiday camps and an official guide (at the Rencontres d'Arles in the summer of 2015 and MAC VAL since 2019). Imagining the work of art in its habitat and working on the contexts of production, circulation, and public outreach are significant elements in each of her projects. She has also taken part in several group shows as an artist or curator (CRAC Alsace, Syndicat Potentiel, Hangar 9, Casino Luxembourg, etc.). 

A 2017 graduate of the Haute École des Arts du Rhin, Aliette Salama has developed her artistic practice through drawing, painting on ceramics, as well as organizing spaces for listening, sharing and creating around the theme of dreams. Adventure tales, strange situations or inexplicable phenomena are, in her eyes, a magnificent material from which to spur creation. She has been organizing “Les Lectures des Rêves Secrets” (The Readings of Secret Dreams) since 2017 and in 2019, she initiated a residency project called “La Nuit du Rêve” (The Night of Dream) where she brings together artists and musicians to create a night long radio program on this theme. 

The project “The Dream Team” benefits from the support of the Direction régionale des Affaires culturelles d'Île-de-France—Ministère de la Culture.
