Dreamwalker features ""Papillon,"" a story of flight, freedom and transformation in which Aliana de la Guardia dances a folkloric tale of a Cuban refugee through the metaphor of the ever-changing life of a butterfly, featuring animation and direction by Deniz Khateri and Kaija Saariaho's ""Sept Papillons"" performed by Stephen Marotto, as well as ""Ofelia’s Life Dream"" a psychedelic tale by composer Caroline Louise Miller, in which a poet travels dream worlds exploring life and death, and drowning transforms into mysterious species of bioluminescent fungi, moths that drink tears of sleeping birds, and giant self-destructing palm trees, with direction by Laine Rettmer.
