Presented by Company of Dreams

undefined

With a breathtaking explosion of dance, fire and illusion, Company of Dreams transports you to the exotic, dangerous and magical world of the Arabian Nights. In this brand new production of one of the greatest stories of the ancient world, Scheherazade and her magical tales of genies, ghouls and faeries, of Sinbad, Aladdin and Ali Baba, are retold in thrilling dance.

Scheherazade and 1001 Nights is set in ancient Persia, where King Shariyar driven mad by his wife’s infidelity, vows to marry a new young bride each day and in the morning execute her. The women of the land are saved from their fate by the bravery and resourcefulness of Scheherazade, who captivates the king by telling him a fantastical new story each night. The stories she told, of genies in lamps, of magic carpets, of magicians, sorcerers and famous characters such as Sinbad and Aladdin, have captivated generations of people in every corner of the world for hundreds of years.

The international cast of Company of Dreams uses a unique blend of jazz, bellydance and Latin dance, plus fire and illusion, all set to powerful music, to create a truly exciting evening of dance. 

Choreographer and producer: Charlotte Desorgher
Director: Sandra Maturana (resident director Matilda, RSC)
