Last Night I Met You Dreaming

A cinematic odyssey of epic storytelling, music and magic

In an absurd mechanical world, where nature is suppressed and speed is king, a journalist has forgotten how to feel. She is charged with writing an article about ‘The Region’ a lush green place on the verge of collapse. When her editor tries to block the story, supernatural forces intervene, her filing cabinets come to life and she is sucked inside. Here she meets Lola a storyteller and a host of spirits and mavericks who conspire to unravel the story and unlock her heart. Inspired by magic realism writer Isabelle Allende's ‘Last Night I Met You Dreaming’ explores our ambivalent relationship with nature and the dangers of taking too much. This exciting new show combines physical theatre, live music and object puppetry with narrative depth – weaving a tale of passion and connection. Over 16s only.
