A mysterious figure wakes up in the National Museum of Singapore. He exists to collect dreams and has the ability to draw out deeper knowledge behind objects and people. Using sign language and sculpting meaning in the air with his fingers, he journeys through the Growing Up gallery with the audience, collecting dreams of the past and present.

Singapore Sign language (SGSL) interpretation and audio description (English) are integrated into the performance. A visual story of the performance is available.
