Public's dreams are performed for them by puppets

A small puppet theatre (puppet box) is set up in an empty lot or plaza. Performers encourage passers-by to briefly write down a recent or memorably vivid dream. All submissions are placed in an elborate black top hat and one is drawn. Performers disappear into box and, using homemade puppets, produce an impromptu interpretation of the dream. A 'dreamer's dictionary' could be used to help the audience member better understand the dream. This could be a pre-planned event as well.

Puppetry gone mad. [DrBob, Dec 21 2006]


       Although somewhat a good idea, there would be NO way anyone could be ready with homemade puppets or props that could come close to expressing my dreams.

       What is the point of this? I feel like I am missing a joke or the general reason one would want to watch puppets act out a dream.

       What happens if you have a dream about puppets acting out your dreams in front of a crowd in a public place?

       Then I guess you post it on the HB as an idea.
Chefboyrbored, Dec 21 2006

       I think this would have to be a pre-planned event. My typical dreams often require the use of urinals, a cat temple, bees, a gremlin, and some guy in a business suit faithfully reproducing 80s songs that were done by female singers.   

       Well, that settles it. I'm off to find a shrink now.

       ...not to mention megaplex buildings with waterfalls as elevators, several hundred staircases, ceilings made of ice, monsters dressed in your parent's clothing, giant chocolate cakes, and well, lots of other stuff.

       So you need an imaginative puppetteer. That, and lots of chocolate. How big does a giant cake have to be at puppet scale?
