Caravan of Dreams Theater Vol.1

By John Allen

Vol.1: The first three texts in the collected works span the world’s literature. The epic of Gilgamesh — created in the Sumerian cradle of civilization — is the earliest story we know, yet contains the deepest question man can ask: `How can I transcend death?’ The story of Marouf the Cobbler is an oriental tale taken from the works of Sir Richard Burton, the great Victorian explorer, and is dedicated to the genius of that world-renowned story-teller, Scheherzade. Goethe’s `Faust’ needs no introduction. The translation of Part One in this collection is pungent and unusual.

The Caravan of Dreams Touring Theater – also known as the “Theater of All Possibilities” – was founded in 1967 by director Kathelin Gray, and dramaturge Johnny Dolphin.

There are TWO volumes of plays from their repetoire:

Gilgamesh
Marouf The Cobbler
Faust Part 1

John Allen

John ‘Dolphin’ Allen, is author, poet, playwright who invented, conceived and co-founded the Biosphere 2 project – the world’s largest laboratory for global ecology. Biosphere 2 set a number of world records in closed life system work including, among others, degree of sealing tightness, 100% waste recycle and water recycle, and duration of human residence within a closed system (eight people for two years). Allen has also conceived and co-founded nine other projects around the world, pioneering in sustainable co-evolutionary development.

He is currently the Chairman of Global Ecotechnics Corporation. This is an international project development and management company with a Biospheric Design Division engaged in designing and preparing to build the second generation of advanced materially closed biospheric systems and ecologically enriched biomic systems (www.biospheres.com); and an EcoFrontiers Division which owns and operates innovative sustainable ecological projects of which he was the co-founder and chief designer in France, Australia (5000 acre savannah regeneration project), Puerto Rico (1000 acre sustainable rainforest project) and England (www.ecotechnics.edu).

Allen began the first manned Biosphere Test Module experiment in September 1988, residing in the almost fully recyclable closed ecological system environment for three days and setting a world record at that time, proving that closed ecological systems would work with humans inside. As the vice-president of Biospheric Development for the project, as well as Executive Chairman, Allen was responsible for the science and engineering that created the materially closed life system, as well as the development of spin-off technologies.
