The Dreaming

Choreography:

Stephen Page

Artistic Director:

Stephen Page

Premiered in 1999 at Barnet Big Top, Hendon, Greenlands Lane, England

Before time began when the land was formed and the spirits roamed free was the Dreaming. Where wet meets dry, the future folds back to the past and the Imagined is often Reality.

Steeped in the cultural heritage of the Aboriginal people of Australia, the Dreaming combines the ancient myth and ritual of the Munyarryun Clan of Northern Australia with music and movement from the contemporary urban world to present a work of sharp beauty and contrasts. Weaving together the elemental experience of both the land and the waters, the Dreaming sets forth on a sublime emotional journey.
