UK Premiere. Dystopian Dream is the brand new production created from a concept originated by Nitin Sawhney and co-devised with Honji Wang and S?bastien Ramirez. This exciting new dance work in which Wang Ramirez direct and perform, is a theatrical realisation of Sawhney's acclaimed 2015 album of the same name. Taking inspiration from threads woven through Nitin Sawhney's album, this stage interpretation combines choreography, live music and theatre to examine themes of loss, isolation, surrender and continuity. Uniting Wang Ramirez's extremely physical hip hop influenced dance language with Sawhney's iconic music and a live singer, the production will take audiences on a journey through parallel universes and unreal dreams. Featuring animated projections by Nick Hillel, costumes by Hussein Chalayan, lighting by Natasha Chivers and set by Shizuka Hariu, Dystopian Dream is a stunning visual spectacle and a delight for the eyes as well as the ears.
