The Man Who Dreamt The Stars
Featuring an ensemble of performers, some of whom are perceived to have intellectual disabilities, The Man Who Dreamt the Stars is a new Merrigong work with a unique artistic vision resulting from our long-term partnership with The Disability Trust.
The Quiet Man is obsessed with all things astronomical; his solitary days spent dreaming of space travel. On the night of a solar storm, his peaceful seclusion is disrupted by a crack in the space-time continuum, and into his world come three lonely figures. Will the cosmic forces unleashed in this brave new world of connection transform his dreams into reality?
The Man Who Dreamt the Stars combines stunning interactive video projection, visual storytelling, and a unique soundscape to create an absurd, playful and powerfully emotional world. Merrigong’s most ambitious production to date, this is exciting new theatre that reminds us that in the face of life’s challenges and restrictions, there is great beauty in the courage it takes to dream.
Recommended for ages 12+.
