BRING DAS VELO NACH HAUSE

NEW PRODUCTION 2022
«THE DREAMING MACHINE»

The ROTES VELO company celebrates its tenth anniversary with a homage to dreams and theatrical lies. With a multidisciplinary team consisting of dancers, actors and a musician, the boundaries between truth and lies, between fantasy and reality are explored.

Tagblatt Zentralschweiz writes on the 14.05.2022

«"The Dreaming Machine" thrilled audiences at its premiere on Friday at the UG of the Lucerne Theatre with a great ensemble, whimsical puppets and stirring music.»

«The production teeters between poetic sequences with whimsical puppets, stylised nightmare scenarios and great dialogue that reminds you of Fassbinder films in the best moments.»

«...absolutely successful and detailed production...»
