Last night I entered Dreamland, the latest production at Usine C created by the wizards at Théâtre Rude Ingénierie …. it’s a kind of manic science fair project gone wild …. Coney Island meets Dr Seuss meets David Lynch meets Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory meets George Orwell …. discreetly placed video cameras and microphones bring you in and out of tiny magical worlds as the human performers engage but never really take control of their wonderful wonky machine. And what’s not to like about a show where you can have a drink and walk around the entire time, or grab a chair for a few minutes and take in the spectacle unfolding all around you. Don’t be scared, enter Dreamland. It’s a fun place !
