A Sprung!! Integrated Dance Theatre Production

about the show

“I think of many, many things about myself [when I make dance]. About emotions, suffering and pain too, and heartbreak…”
– Zac Mifsud, a Sprung!! Company Dancer.

O, How I Dreamt of Things Impossible is a novel work of integrity, beauty, and depth, which will resonate long after viewers leave the theatre.

From tiny hand gestures, to the ebb and flow of relationships and the yearning for things just out of reach, Artistic Director Michael Hennessy and Sprung!! dancers reveal the manifold nature of the creative process through a unique choreographic language rich in imagery and emotion.

O, How I Dreamt of Things Impossible is the result of five years of collaboration between Hennessy and Sprung!! dancers.

The performance is augmented with projections by multidisciplinary artist Andrew Christie and lighting by John Rayment.
