MUSICAL THEATRE | North American premiere
Slumberland is a voyage through film and music into the world of the night, at the exact moment when everything turns upside down and dreams take over from reality. Children let their vivid imaginations take us into a fascinating world as they tell us their dreams and explain why, in their opinion, night falls.
Singer/pianists interpret the images of director Nathalie Teirlinck through music, drawing the audience into a musical universe filled with fanciful characters encountered during the night: the little girl-in-the-moon who lands on Earth, the little sandman as he leaves his cave, the “specialist” who tells us everything we ever wanted to know about sleep, the bat whose favourite position is upside down… characters that are magical, touching and funny, balancing on the fine line between dreams and reality.
