Immerse yourself in a limitless adventure full of live video, poetry and energetic music. Have you ever had the feeling of falling just before you go to asleep? Falling Dreams is about that moment. You find yourself in the dreaming, thinking head of a twelve year old girl. With thoughts that come and go and images layered one on top of the other.
In Falling Dreams anything can happen, just like in a dream. Using cameras and projection, the audience is in many places at once and miniature worlds are blown up and made to look larger than life. At times it’s like you suddenly find yourself in a music video, complete with raw pop songs and bizarre objects.
An out-of-control rollercoaster ★★★★★ The Herald >>
The smooth way in which the five performers effortlessly handle so much technology to achieve stunning, atmospheric images and music is sensational. A dream you could not have dreamed up better yourself. ★★★★ Theatre Newspaper
Falling Dreams is a falling dream and surgical brainwork in one that leaves you with newfound respect for your brain, which performs this extraordinary feat every night.
