Tucson Dream-History Tour

Tucson Dream-History Tour

January 21, 2022 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Meet us at MOCA Tucson for one of three Tucson Dream-History Tours presented by the University of Arizona Poetry Center. Led by poet Mathias Svalina, expect each tour to last approximately one hour; each is a unique experience. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an extra layer for a January evening. 

Over a series of three free guided walks, The Tucson Dream-History Tour relates city histories that never happened. In the tradition of the 1970s Fluxus tours of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, street-artists’ reinventions of public spaces, & factually dubious urban tours throughout the world, The Tucson Dream-History Tour guides participants into the city to discover new wonders. With poetry-driven stories about various locations in three 1-2 mile walks, the Dream-History Tour mixes bits of recorded city history, joyfully erroneous interpretation, & a dream’s sense of profound nonsense, building new fables out of the building blocks of the city, unearthing the surrealism embedded in Tucson’s real.
