Dora’s Gently Used Dreams Store

An Interactive Pop Up Shop Performance

Playing at FringeArts in Philadelphia PA

Mar 29 at 5:00pm, 6:00pm and 8:00pm

Get a glimpse inside a makeshift shop containing Dora’s secret collection – the dreams and nightmares donated by past customers. Writer and performer Morgan McKenzie Kauffman merges simple magic, character, science and folk lore to tell the story of Dora and the patrons who make up this mysterious market. This interactive show changes every performance as Dora’s collection grows with each new audience. Shop the store yourself or donate your own dream
in this intimate experience about our relationship to the uncontrollable stories that come through us every night.

For the antique addicts, mystically moved, even the dubious doubtful, Dora’s Gently Used Dream Store offers a sense of awe and enigma for the unconscious phenomenon shared by us all.

“Magical. Haunting. Visually Delicious. Can’t wait for more.”

“Intimate. Relatable. Funny…with just the right amount of horror. I loved it!”
