A man who can't sleep dares to dream.
In a twisting and erratic landscape an insomniac meets his dream woman. Guided by obscure ancient etchings and a bluesy, baroque, electro soundtrack, the dancer and the juggler navigate the realities – or unrealities – of love.
Performed by internationally distinguished circus artist Sakari Männistö and ballet dancer Emma Lister, principal at English Youth Ballet for 10 years; choreographed by dancer and Royal Ballet choreographer Ludovic Ondiviela. The three artists last worked together on Gandini Juggling’s 4x4 (“jaw-dropping … elegant, wistful beauty” – The Guardian).
Like Vertigo with a subverted male gaze; like Inception without the budget; like circus and ballet and unlike either.
A UK premiere.
