Dream Ball

CLOSING CEREMONY ROLDUC 2019

Every year at our annual dream conference, the International Association for the Study of Dreams lets off steam with our famous costume Dream Ball. There’s a costume parade where each person has 60 seconds to share the dream that inspired their costume, and then the dancing begins. At the 2019 conference at the beautiful 12th century Rolduc Abbey in The Netherlands, our Closing Ceremony was a high-energy event that kicked off the Dream Ball for a night of dream-filled fun after a wildly successful five-day extravaganza!

ANNUAL COSTUME DREAM BALL

Plunge head-first down the rabbit-hole of dreaming, abandoning the conscious overburdened part of ourselves, and spend a few hours in the place where dreams surround us and come alive. Costumes are not mandatory, but you will be the odd-person-out if you don’t take this chance to dress up like a figure from your dreams and dance the night away.

Start thinking now about your costume! There will be a dream costume parade that begins at 7:15 pm. You will have a brief chance to show off your costume and tell how it relates to your dream. And because so many will share, we do mean brief – some menacing dream figure will be standing by with the “hook” for those that go over the 1 minute time limit (2 minutes for groups). Don’t miss this fantastic conclusion to the conference

DREAM BALL INSTRUCTION SHEET

Do not, under any circumstances, miss the Dream Ball at the end of the Conference!

It happens Wednesday night (It is the very last event of the entire conference) at 7PM in the Ballroom.

After days and days of cerebral activity and learning, it is time to jump inside our dreams and lose ourselves in the catharsis of dance and music.

Come dressed in costume as one of your dream figures (there is a lot of latitude here) and if you feel moved to, you will have 1 minute to tell everyone about it- 2 minutes if you are a group, – think about teaming up with others- some of the best presentations are groups.

Don’t have a costume? Here are a few places nearby you can procure a costume.
