Sleep, Perchance to Dream
Enter a world of dreams where the line between reality and fantasy is blurred, female ambition is questioned, and woman is born.
In a captivating rebellion, see Shakespeare’s Ophelia empowered in a world beyond the pages of ‘Hamlet’. Sleep, Perchance to Dream is a distinctive physical and visual theatre work which re-imagines Ophelia as a woman of thought, creativity and strength. Incisively exploring the modern female experience, this unleashed and intricate underworld spans a manifold of ephemeral identities from seed to full bloom.
