Blackbird Ensemble are heading to bed... And you're invited. Wear your finest pyjamas, throw on your slippers, and head to Dreams at the Basement this April.

'Dreams' is the newest creation from Blackbird Ensemble who have become known for their elaborate and powerful musical concert experiences.

Starring 9 versatile multi­instrumentalists, this miniature orchestra presents an eclectic mix of music by artists such as Stravinsky, Piazolla, The Smiths, Calexico, Fleetfoxes and Radiohead. Blackbird Ensemble's set list adopts its usual disregard for genre, binding its concert together with thematic links; this time, music inspired by dreamstates, nightmares, lullabies and the rituals of the bedroom.

Blackbird Ensemble morphs into a smaller ensemble than their last 3 productions (The Night Sky, The Wilderness, By The Sea) to present 'Dreams' in The Basement Theatre. For the first time, the ensemble merges concert music with physical theatre and characterization.

Musical director: Claire Cowan (Composer in residence 2015 with Orchestra Wellington)
Director: Renee Lyons (Nick: An Accidental Hero)
Set designer: Daniel Williams
