Sleeping Beauty Dreams is a retelling of the Brothers Grimm fairytale, exploring the untold story of Princess Aurora's 100 years of dreams. A new kind of theatrical experience combining live performance, art, and technology to show that the world of dreams is unique and doesn’t have to be confined by time or space.

An innovative show with a strong influence of modern electronic music appeals to one of the most iconic world stories - Sleeping Beauty.

 

Of course, the European tale has been interpreted many times by the greatest masters since the 14th century, but they all kept silent about one thing: that the enchanted princess had dreamed of for 100 years of enchanted sleep. “Sleeping Beauty Dreams” adds a new dimension to the classic story. The most modern technologies of visual art make it possible to embody the constant metamorphosis of images from Sleeping Beauty dreams, perfectly repeating the dancers' movements on the stage thanks to the avatar costume and opening new horizons in the world of theatrical productions.

 

The project creators themselves talk about their offspring: “Sleeping Beauty Dreams is a progressive fantasy. An old legend that inspired us to immerse deeply into our own inner world. This is the whole universe. Synthesis of digital art, modern dance and advanced technologies, with the help of which we can explore our dreams, fears, temptations and fateful decisions. ”

 

“Dreams” became a reality thanks to designer Tobias GREMMLER, working with Bjork, costume designer Bart HESSU, working with Lady Gaga, choreographer Edward KLUGU, lighting designer Lauren FORT, EDIS pioneers of NOISIA / Thijs de Vlieger, as a letter, and a letter, as well as a letter, by a letter from Lauren FORT, NOISIA / Thijs de Vlieger EDM pioneers, to a letter, to a letter, to a letter by Loren FORT, a drawing by NOISIA / Thijs de Vlieger, to a letter, by a letter to a letter from a letter by Lauren FORT, by NOISIA / Thijs de Vlieger EDM pioneers, by a letter to a letter, by a letter by a letter by a drawing artist Lauren FORT, by NOISIA / Thijs de Vlieger EDM pioneers, by a letter, by a letter by syl and who collaborate with musicians like Skrillex and deadmau5.
