Awake Dreams are improvised mischievous avant-garde performances which at first appear childishly simple, but which devilishly suck the audience into a surreal and sensual underground where even serious can become silly without taboos to spoil their fun. Each piece is designed to goose your mind and morality … among other things.

Frank Moore is a well-known performance artist who always tries to create a dream reality in which anything is possible.

The Edge is an avant-garde company of actors and artists founded and directed by Frank. The Edge is focused on subversion, on magic, on altering reality … and is not afraid of combining individual arts together.
