Young Vic associate company Fevered Sleep return with a new show which celebrates the wide, wild world around us.
This is an adventure that explores the meaning of home, family, change and reunion.
Combining film and live performance, it has its young audience at its heart.
It's Dusk, the time when everything changes. Nestled together in the heart of a forest, a group of creatures with furry tails are waiting for their friend to arrive. Their friend has a long way to travel, many things to discover and challenges to face.
Dusk continues Fevered Sleep's interest in the child's eye view of the natural world, as seen in The Forest in 2009. The audience is invited to experience a journey through forests, beaches, up mountains and into the centre of a city, to witness how the world changes as seasons pass and tides turn. Although made for four to seven-year-olds, Dusk will be enjoyed by older children and adults. Tails for all are provided!
Fevered Sleep's Artistic Directors David Harradine and Samantha Butler have increasingly combined an eclectic range of media, using different art forms and technological methods to make thoughtful and original work. They have produced films, an app, books, installations, dance pieces and theatre for both adults and children. Past work includes Young Vic co-productions Above Me The Wide Blue Sky, On Ageing and The Forest; The Weather Factoreeative events - Brilliant, And the Rain Falls Down and Feast Your Eyes.
Dusk is devised and directed by David Harradine and Samantha Butler, with design by David Harradine, Samantha Butler and Ali Beale. It features light by Hansjorg Schmidt, sound by Gareth Fry, music by David Leahy and cinematography by Will Duke. Dusk is produced in association with Fuel, commissioned by Pontio, Bangor, and supported by Stratford Circus.
