Theatre of Dreams

Choreography and Music: Hofesh Shechter
Performed by Hofesh Shechter Company

Hofesh Shechter’s new full-length evening will take audiences on a wild headfirst dive into the theatre of dreams.

Performed by the inimitable dancers of Hofesh Shechter Company, this thrilling new work will delve deep into the world of fantasy and the subconscious, revealing fears, hopes, desires and a myriad of emotions that penetrates not only our dreams but also our waking thoughts – the mind is king.

The dancers’ bodies will bring to life on stage this interplay between poetry and reality, accompanied by a small band of musicians playing live to the backdrop of Shechter’s trademark cinematic sound-score. Hofesh will reunite with lighting designer, Tom Visser and costume designer, Osnat Kelner to create a powerful, sculptured setting to this dreamscape.
