about the show
A NORPA production in association with Arts Northern Rivers.
From the team behind Railway Wonderland, Dreamland is NORPA’s new intimate work that will be performed at Eureka Hall in the rolling hills of the Byron Bay hinterland.
Dreamland is a time capsule of local history, characters and ghosts that have frequented Eureka Hall since it was built in 1906. The hall has been the gathering place for community meetings, gala balls, send offs for local boys going to distant wars, hippie invasions and waves of tree-changers. The work has been created in association with Arts Northern Rivers If These Halls Could Talk project, and in collaboration with the Eureka Hall Committee and community.
Dreamland is a celebration of the dance of life, in all its mystery. Sometimes quick, sometimes slow, elegantly together or crazy alone. Combining physical theatre, song, dance, humour and drama Dreamland is full of the adventurous, innovative and entertaining hallmarks of NORPA original works.
Local performer Phil Blackman and Sydney based actress Katia Molino, who both performed in Railway Wonderland will return to the NORPA family. They’ll be joined by acclaimed actress Toni Scanlon (best known for her role as Helen Blakemore in the Australian TV police drama Water Rats but also an award winning stage actress in All My Sons and King Tide) and acrobat Darcy Grant who is also a founding member of internationally acclaimed contemporary circus company Circa.
