Dodo's Dream

When the clock strikes twelve, magic begins and a doll comes to life...

Inspired, amongst others, by the myth of Pygmalion and the tales of E.T.A. Hoffmann (such as The Sand Man and The Nutcracker) Circle of Two tell the heartbreaking, impossible love story of an eccentric inventor and the mechanical doll he has created in resemblance of his deceased wife. When he goes to sleep, he dreams that his beloved comes back to life. 

Dodo’s Dream is a magical journey into a tender and wacky universe, totally inscribed in children's poetry. A fairy tale that triggers the laughter and wonder of the little ones and the emotion of the grown ups!

Dodo’s Dream is a visual and universal show for public of all ages and nationalities.  

 

"Our Hackney audience was thrilled by the show. I have had a non stop stream of compliments

about how wonderful it all was. You turned a very big space into a magical environment and

enlivened our ceiling. "Andrew Coombs, director of the Hackney Children's Theatre
