Sleep Perchance To Dream

A new physical theatre work co-presented by Tantrum Youth Arts in partnership with Alex Travers.

Get lost in a world of dreams where the line between reality and fantasy is blurred, where power is exploited, and female ambition questioned. See Shakespeare’s classic character Ophelia as never before, as she searches for purpose and seeks validation in a world beyond the pages of Hamlet.

Tantrum Youth Arts is proud to co-produce Sleep Perchance to Dream, the first full-length new work to be created out of the Trajectory Residency Program. In 2017 Alex Travers underwent a rigorous first-stage creative development at Tantrum, presenting a showing of the work at Crack Theatre festival in October and dazzling audiences with her incredible charm and adept skill as a physical theatre performer. In 2018 Tantrum has supported Alex and her creative team to further develop this work and realise it in a full-scale production under the guidance of mentor Stephanie Kehoe.

Join theatre maker Alex Travers and her creative team in Sleep, Perchance to Dream - a powerful and inspiring physical portrait of femininity and power.
