Presented by Weave Movement Theatre and Yumi Umiumare, White Day Dream is a unique fusion between Butoh and physical theatre performed by dancers with and without disability. The work moves between the surreal and absurd exploring universal human themes of memory and dreams, their fragility, transience and power. Like a dream itself, White Day Dream recalls subconscious emotions, where things are at once unexpectedly linked and disconnected.

Weave Movement Theatre is an ambitious and diverse Melbourne-based hybrid dance and theatre performance company, comprised of people with and without disabilities. The company formed in 1997 through an Arts Access Victoria project and continues today developing high quality performances. Weave Movement Theatre’s work subverts audience’s expectations, and challenges conventional ways of seeing dance and disability. They present a distinctive and progressive model for inclusive dance performance.

…wildly surreal visual theatre…. Wonder and weirdness, humour and unexpected poignancy…’

…fragments of creative inspiration you won’t find anywhere else.’ The Age
