Acting out "A Dream Within a Dream"

Tomarro morning I am expected to give some sort of presentation on how to act out sir Edgar A. Poe's "A Dream Within a Dream", could any of you offer suggestions on how to do so? This would be much apreciated... as I am rather unhappy with the limited ideas I have now.

I think the acting out is ment to be wordless followed by a vocal interpretation of my silent acting.

Many thanks to you all

"The reality of this "dream within a dream" lies in the power of its ideal values Innocence, Joy, Love, and Beauty the haunting Memory of a lost Eden deep in some Collective Unconscious? represents the potential of harmony of self with nature, of self with soul (or psyche), and of soul with some transcendent, Platonic Beauty. Although aspiring spirits among men may be touched by Beauty in the "Fairy-Land" of the imagination, the immemorial dream-ideal is threatened or destroyed by passing time, by the illusory reality of appearances, by ambition, and by passion (as distinguished from ideal."
