My dreams are magnetic - I cannot help but follow... is a full-length (60-minute) interdisciplinary undergraduate senior honors project. The piece follows a female protagonist’s journey of self-discovery. She encounters multiple versions of herself, interacts with figures from her past, explores her memories, and comes to terms with internal emotional trauma. The physical processing of her experiences culminates in a joyful release of energy and personal freedom.
