Romance. Comedy. Sci-Fi. Mystery. Come of age again, with us, on the evening of July 23. Bring a friend or join alone, but be with us for a destruction of genre and a remembrance of dream-time conversation, for the PREMIERE SCREENING of LION SUIT DREAMSCAPE
Join us on Thursday, July 21 from 7-9pm for a pop-up art show featuring four of Nashville’s premier visual artists: Troy Duff, Stephen Watkins, Brian Wooden, and Jake Elliott. Be one of the first to see and experience their latest work, ranging from fine graffiti to 8-foot charcoal portraits – pieces you won’t find in any traditional gallery. This is a free event, and we encourage you to support local artists and Southern Word by purchasing art or by making a donation to this worthy cause. With your generosity, we can enable more spoken word school residencies, after-school workshops, and youth performances; and, ultimately, liberate more students through the power of expression.

I felt these were movies about real things and that kind of woke me up.” Lion Suit Dreamscape’s story follows an ex-hero firefighter who dreams of his childhood TV hero and a woman he has never seen. When he passes her in real life, he sets out to find who she is, how and why he dreamt of her plus much more. Because of budget and schedules, Lion Suit Dreamscape was filmed incrementally.
