What do sleep, dreams, and nightmares look like as dance? Emerson Urban Dance Theatre’s show REM at the Semel Stage answered that question.
Last week’s show was specifically choreographed to represent REM (rapid eye movement) which is the sleep stage when most dreams happen. The show featured numerous dance pieces: five contemporary, five hip-hop, four tap, and two full company numbers.
