KINGDOM OF RAIN
A collaborAtion with Tom Brown
On the last night of our lives we all share the same dream.
Some people believe your life flashes before your eyes... that final dream, an odyssy through The Kingdom of Rain is the foundation for that superstition. It's a journey in which we confront everything we have lived and haven't lived, all of the nightmares we conjured as children, all of the versions of us that never were because of roads we didn't take.
We travel with two heroes, one old man who has lived his life to the full, one young girl who never really got to live hers to the Avenue of Yous - a crowded Victorian street where everyone wears your face... each one of them from a different day of your life where you made the choices that eventually made you you... They are the yous that never got to live because you chose something else instead of them... And you have to face them all before you die.
Through the Abyss of Lost Memories - where you are confronted by everything that every happened in your life that you have forgotten... Like a snake pit of bitter life we put behind us... to the Silent House. This is where we lose everything that the dreamer was and ever might be returns to the pattern that makes us essentially aspects of the divine. The core of the last dream is a metaphysical journey, scaling the tower, being stripped as we climb until we are one with the elements, our dream flesh drawn from our dream bones to feed the energy of life, creation, everything and we're ready to become part of the energy of the universe.
And so much more.
