Dreamland

Date: 3 Apr 2019

First performed in 2016 at Eureka Hall in the Byron Bay hinterland, Dreamland is a time capsule of local history, characters and ghosts, a celebration of the dance of life, in all its mystery.

Devised by NORPA’s Julian Lewis and writer Janis Balodis, Dreamland blends physical theatre, song, dance, humour and drama to celebrate the central place community halls played in regional life.

“The dances and balls gave meaning and expression to life,” says Balodis. “It is where people met, fell in love, broke up … and got on with it. There was a place for everyone, the popular and the plain, those who could dance with grace and those who bumbled awkwardly about. Music and dance are wonderful triggers for memory, and dance is a delightful metaphor for life.”
