Enter a metaphorical universe in which all sense of time is lost, where characters evoke a surreal and swirling dreamlike state. Blurring the line between the real and the imaginary, Reverie invites audiences into a fantasy-like world in which they might recognise their own emotions, phobias and behaviours.
Reverie explores how memories and the past shape our collective narrative. Drawing inspiration from the use of archetypes in Lewis Carol’s Alice and Carl Jung’s theories on the subconscious, the work creates connections between the known and the unfamiliar to demonstrate how interchangeable these states can be.
Fusing movement and visual arts, choreographers Georgia Tegou and Michalis Theophanous transport audiences into captivating visual environments in their ‘dance-as-design' creations. Tegou recently created Ochre for ZfinMalta - National Dance Company Malta and the sold-out family production Underwater with Xenia Aidonopoulou nationally and at Sadler’s Wells. Movement artist Theophanous has collaborated with numerous artists and companies including Greek theatre director and choreographer Dimitris Papaioannou and most recently performed in Transverse Orientation, as part of Dance Umbrella 2021.
