In a run-down rehearsal room, a director drifts off to sleep with images of the day’s rehearsals running through his mind. In his dreams the play is revisited, recast and replayed, and fantastic images of world far beyond his room appear.
Life is a Dream is a spectacular new dance show from Olivier Award-winner Kim Brandstrup, the choreographer behind Rambert‘s Transfigured Night. Dramatic, lyrical dancing from Rambert’s world-class ensemble, dream-like imagery from legendary filmmakers the Quay Brothers and a live orchestra playing the rich music of Witold Lutosławski combine to transport you into an otherwordly atmosphere.
Running time: 1h 40mins (incl. 25min interval)
Not suitable for under 5s.
