The Untitled Red Book Project

Support Artists: Marium Khalid, Co-Music, Co-Lyrics, Director; Katie Givens Kime, co-writer, Dramaturg; Phillip Justman, co-writer, actor
The Untitled Red Book Project explores the story of Bea, a young American photography student, who finds herself in Zurich, Switzerland in 2007 assisting in the documentation of a century-old book, hidden from the world until that moment: The Red Book. Written by Carl Jung, a founder of modern psychology, The Red Book is an intimate journal that records his personal pursuit of dreams, inner images, and the mysterious, bizarre unconscious...with extraordinary results. As Bea documents the paintings and words within The Red Book, she confronts the realm of her own unconscious -- meeting Jung halfway between this world and a world boiling just under the surface. Led by composer, lyricist and sound designer Haddon Kime, the artistic team for this project includes Saïah Arts International founders Marium Khalid and Phillip Justman, as well as Katie Givens Kime, a doctoral student in religion and psychoanalysis at Emory University, and published adaptor/director Vincent Murphy (artistic consultant). This show will feature an ambitious sound design and original songs, exploring what is both recognizable and bizarre to every one of us: our dreams, and all that springs from our unconscious.
