12-20 March 2021


Dream is one of the Audience of the Future Demonstrator projects from the Royal Shakespeare Company, combining live performance and gaming technology to explore the future for audiences and live theatre.

The Royal Shakespeare Company, in collaboration with Manchester International Festival, Marshmallow Laser Feast and Philharmonia Orchestra are staging a live performance of Dream using motion capture as the culmination of a major piece of cutting-edge research and development.

This pioneering collaboration explores how audiences could experience live performance in the future. Dream was due to open in Spring 2020 as an in person and online live performance and has been recreated during the pandemic for online audiences whilst theatres remain closed. Inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, the project combines theatre, music and groundbreaking technology in an extraordinary exploration into the future of live performance.

  • Performance: Friday 12 March – Saturday 20 March 2021
  • Booking: Tickets available at dream.online
