PREVIEW: House of Dreams @ The Spire, 16-17/03/2017

The Verse’s Hannah Aston details what we can expect from The Inexplicable Cabaret Theatre‘s House of Dreams, which comes to The Spire in Kemptown on the 16th and 17th of March.

Tantalisingly limited performance dates. Promises of a ‘promenade, installation based’ theatre experience. This is what we can look forward to with House of Dreams – a wondrous production from The Inexplicable Cabaret Theatre.

Consisting of dance, physical theatre, story-telling, circus and live music, this production tells the story of a heart-broken alchemist who, having drugged his town’s people with sleep, travels through worlds beyond his wildest dreams. Viewers of House of Dreams can expect to be taken through surreal worlds, in a theatre production which is rich in culture and like no other.

Having produced theatre spectacles such as The Inexplicable Cabaret Circus in May, and its successful follow-up in September 2016, The Inexplicable Cabaret Theatre demonstrate their effectiveness at new, experimental theatre. Their aim? To ‘tell stories in imaginative ways with social consciousness’.

House of Dreams runs on just two dates: 16th and 17th March 2017. It is also held in the very real Kemptown, in a new performance arts venue called The Spire. One ticket includes food on arrival, the theatre spectacle itself, and a midnight ball with live music to finish. There will be an Apothecary-themed bar to go with the strange and wonderful theme of the evening.

Inexplicable Cabaret’s third production, written and directed by Delphine du Barry, boasts a dark story of love and desire, ‘told with a social consciousness on a journey through worlds, travelling on dreamtime’. If a night of wizardry, dreams, gothic love, all in a house of dreams were nothing is as it seems, then this production might just be for you. If nothing else, it promises to be a memorable evening.

More information and tickets can be found on Inexplicable Cabaret’s website.
