An exhilarating rollercoaster of a show, Dream City is a dance party where seven musicians and dancers share the stage. Sometimes the performers are firmly in the present, bouncing off each other like human pin-balls, at other times they move in a world of their own.
The music propels the dancers on as they play games of daring and exuberant one-upmanship, creating organised chaos as they go. It’s not long before the stage fills with discarded costumes and bodies, like some mad dressing up party.
De Dansers, based in The Netherlands, are known for their full on, energetic family shows, and Dream City is no exception. Come along and enjoy the ride.

“An exciting elaboration of the unknown.” De Theaterkrant
“There is complete abandonment and an infectious, exhilarating sense of freedom. This is not just a performance, it suggests a philosophy for life: feel the mood, forget your fear, and then let go… together!” EdinburghGuide.com
