Brixton’s outdoor theatre hosts The Dream Sequence

Following a string of successful summer productions, Brixton’s outdoor theatre is returning this June with a brand new take on a Shakespeare classic.

The Dot Collective theatre company will perform The Dream Sequence, inspired by A Midsummer Night’s Dream, at the Ariel Theatre in Windmill Gardens, Brixton, on June 15.

The Dream Sequence takes a fresh look at the nature of dreaming, where aspirations and fond memories become reality.

The immersive, open-air family theatre show will fuse together aerial circus, clowning and music to bring audiences an engaging visual spectacle that transcends generations.

The audience is encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or camping chair and a picnic too as the performance is outside in the park. 

The Brixton Windmill Centre cafe will also be open for drinks and snacks on the day.

The production is for all ages and abilities and has been developed to be accessible to all, including those living with dementia and PMLD (profound and multiple learning disability).

The Dot Collective was formed in Southwark in 2016​ to provide professional theatre which is accessible and cognitively stimulating for those living in care, particularly those living with dementia.

The collective facilitate sensory activities and theatre to create in-the-moment joyful experiences, to reconnect people with their history, redreduce isolation and improving the quality of life in care.

Performances will run at 2pm and 6pm. Tickets can be purchased via www.brixtonwindmill.org and range from £14 for adults to £10 for young people under the age of 16.
