White Day Dream directed by Yumi Umiumare

Following a very successful creative development and showing in 2015, Weave will present a two week season of the new original work White Day Dream, directed by Yumi Umiumare in collaboration with the company. The venue will be fortyfive downstairs at 45 Flinders Lane Melbourne from 27 October to 6 November.

Is it really happening right in front of us or are we daydreaming?

What if our piled up memories were suddenly erased

Presented by Weave Movement Theatre and Yumi Umiumare, White Day Dream is a unique fusion between Butoh and physical theatre performed by dancers with and without disability. The work moves between the surreal and absurd exploring universal human themes of memory and dreams, their fragility, transience and power. Like a dream itself, White Day Dream recalls subconscious emotions, where things are at once unexpectedly linked and disconnected.

“a wider palette of human capacity…..Much bigger and more resilient than us all” – Phillipa Rothfield, Real Time

“The show’s strength lies in the performers’ ability to make the banal magical” Hilary Crampton, The Age
