The show “Lucid Dreams” is an immersive experience where audiences are taken on a journey through dreams. Ensemble of actors creates a strange world of dreams that is full of symbols, illusions and grotesque imagery through movement, contemporary dance and work with masks and objects.

What is IMMERSIVE? 26 audience members at a time enter theatrical space and participate in the action while interacting with actors and experiencing different dream worlds from the inside.

The story is based on children’s research of their own dreams that they studied for many months, then analyzed and explored through physical work on stage. This piece is created from children’s desperate desire to connect, find that “electricity” that brings people together, makes them care about each other, experience breathtaking flights, discover new boundaries of the universe, and feel the unrestrained need to share their discoveries with the whole world.

“Lucid Dreams” is a Laureate of the 15th World Festival of Children’s Theatre in Lingen, Germany (June 2018).

Participating theatres: Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre (Canada), Piano Theatre (Russia), Solo Theater (USA).

6:20-7:30 pm – Show Wings For Clowns by Piano Theatre.

In no way being deaf limits the artistic expression of the troupe of child actors from Russia. In many ways, their unique perspective on the world – one without sound – informs their art and their performance.

In Wings For Clowns, the actors use the language of motion to deliver several miniature performances featuring archetypal characters such as Pierrot, Harlequin, Columbine, Old Man and Old Woman. Trees, Sea, Wind and Rain are the main heroes of the performance. Through these characters the inner life of each performer is revealed and the audience is engaged.

Between the spectators and actors emerges a unified area of co-participation, co-creation, co-experience: this is the marvelous effect of “Piano” that strives to repeat it again and again.

The “Piano” Theatre began in 1986 at the Nizhny Novgorod (Russia) boarding school for deaf children and has participated in more than 50 international festivals, 5 world festivals in 15 countries including Russia, Germany, USA, Luxembourg, Finland, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Austria, Canada.

Our new theatre project for children is here! Take a look!

In June 2015 two theatres will meet to participate in our new International project – Children’s Theatre Exchange: Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre (Ottawa, Canada) and Solo Theatre (Atlanta, USA).

Children’s Theatre Exchange provides an opportunity for children who participate in theatre groups of various cities to find friends with similar interests; exchange and share their theatre experience; broaden perception of the theatre world; learn to engage into open discussions about each other’s work skilfully and professionally; and find joy in collective creation with new people.

The program is designed for participants ages up to 18 years old and open to theatres who create in any genre and in any language!

In the course of one week, children will share their original shows with each other and general public (this time in Russian), participate in acting workshops lead by professional theatre practitioners, lead discussions at the round-table and theatre debates, write and publish theatre reviews, and spend unforgettable days full of friendship and creativity.

The shows will take place on June 5th at Kailash Mital Theatre at Carleton U and open to general public!
