Catalogue of Dreams is a charismatic and compelling work created by the award winning Urban Theatre Projects.
Bold, evocative images collide as wannabe kings and make-believe queens jostle for power within their imaginary kingdom. Told with Urban Theatre Projects’ imaginative and refreshingly honest style, this was a street-smart, disturbing and ultimately heart-breaking story about a family caught in their own beautiful chaos.
Commissioned by the Centenary of Canberra, Catalogue of Dreams tells a multi-faceted story of the lives of young people at risk in the ACT; sharing a personal and profound picture of their social realities within a system that does not fit their needs.
This work seeds the creative partnership of Rosie Dennis and Alicia Talbot, working in collaboration with a team of Canberra based artists. Complimentary in style, both Dennis and Talbot share a vision to tell stories of what it is like to live in urban Australia and how this connects with the rest of the world. Together they are a potent creative force guaranteed to create exciting and provocative theatre.
Catalogue of Dreams is a Centenary of Canberra project, proudly supported by the ACT Government.
