An adventure full of live video, poetry and energetic music.

Falling Dreams (from the creators of The Great Illusionist) takes the audience inside the head of a twelve year old girl on the cusp of teenagehood, with dreams full of fleeting thoughts and jumbled images of her daily life.

Using live music and projections, the performance takes the audience on an immersive journey, part music video, part dream where miniature worlds are blown up on screen larger than life. This beautiful and rhythmic show explores what dreams are made of. And reminds us that we don’t have to tell our parents everything.

Falling Dreams is supported by Ministry of Education, Culture & Science and the City of Utrecht

“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
