Sleepless DREAMs

by SUSIE SILLETT

 

SLEEPLESS DREAMS IS PART OF SHOOT FESTIVAL'S TRIPLE BILL, WHICH WILL TAKE PLACE AT BELGRADE THEATRE ON 17TH MARCH 2017, 8PM

SLEEPLESS DREAMS

Lucinda lives an average life in an average kingdom with an average king, but when one day the king decides that average isn’t good enough, the world around her is turned upside down. Even after his military has conquered every piece of land in sight, it’s not enough to satisfy the greedy monarch, who is determined to conquer every piece of land OUT of sight.

Can Lucinda find a way to stop him before the border between waking and sleeping is destroyed forever?

In a fun, funny, frenetic piece of storytelling, Susie Sillett seeks to explore the nature of dreams, where we go when we sleep, and how we tell subconscious stories; using song, dance, and lots of ribbons.
