The Arrest er baseret på en drøm af George Perec udgivet i "La Boutique Obscure" en  samling af  150 drømme-fortællinger fra 1973

I dette værk sætter Yannis Kyriakides 'drømme teksten'* op som en animeret tekstfilm underbygget og forstærket af en elektronisk-akustisk lydside. Som beskuer ser og hører man et samspil af flere betydningslag og hastigheder, som synes at passe til drømmes ofte  ejendommelige og usammenhængende fortælling i tid.

Yannis Kyriakides er græsk/kypriotisk komponist og lydkunstner bosiddende i Amsterdam. Han arbejder med moderne klassisk musik og lydkunst. Som i tekstfilmen The Arrest udforsker han i sine arbejder ofte relationen mellem musik og fortælling samt kombinationen a traditionel performance og  digitale medier.

English:
* The particular dream used in the arrest is typical of a recurring nightmare which he used to have of being stopped and arrested by the police, a fear which he perhaps carried from the experience of his parents who were deported and killed in the holocaust. In fact there are references in the dream to his Jewish heritage and the discomfort he felt regarding his pro-Palestinian position. In the dream he was not sure why or who was arresting him. He is also unsure of his identity, he asks in his dream whether he will be a Tunisian prisoner in France or a French prisoner in Tunisia, but mostly he is concerned that in prison he will have to keep his socks on for several more years, and that they are already dirty.
