What are dreams – states of consciousness experienced during sleep or diffuse information that can be organized logically only upon waking up? What realities can be found, in altered form, in a dream? Are they at all connected to our everyday reality and if so, how? How can we best grasp these realities? Neurophysiologically? Psychoanalytically? Philosophically? Or aesthetically, like in Shakespeare’s/Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream?
