Directed by Tim Supple

“A production that’s already entered the annals of theatrical history” Time Out

DreamA unique and epic international collaboration, the “Indian Dream”, commissioned by the British Council, incorporated an Indian and Sri Lankan cast and crew with a multilingual text.

Combining live traditional music with acrobatics, folk performers with realistic actors and traditional dance with contemporary movement, it opened in Delhi in 2006. It went on to tour four major cities in India, and enjoyed huge success at the RSC’s Complete Works Festival in Stratford upon Avon and the Verona festival on Midsummer’s night.

In 2007 the Indian Dream returned for a sell out six-week run at the Roundhouse in London followed by a four-week return to the RSC in Stratford upon Avon and a 10 week UK tour supported by the Arts Council England. In 2008 it returned to India and went on to enjoy great success in Australia, the USA and Canada.
