Hypnagogia is the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep, a moment when dream and reality merge. Choreographer Muhanad Rasheed plays the leading role, as the choreographer of a group of dancers who don’t seem to understand his directions. After a rehearsal, in which everybody dances in black against a white background, he takes a stroll in nature, and when he falls asleep he gets his dream dance.
