AWESOME FESTIVAL, Review

AWESOME FESTIVAL 2022 | Dreams of a Lonely Planet | 4 Stars

Review | Laura Money

Flying Bicycle Collective are the quirky new children’s theatre group bringing whimsical and beautiful theatre to children and the young at heart. Dreams of a Lonely Planet is a joy to watch, taking imagination and yearning and wrapping them up in a warm hug of a show.

The three characters – all seeking adventure with a desire to explore – magically travel from planet to planet, fish for stars and fall in love with lamps and more. With fun costumes and a vintage soundtrack, this gentle show looks and feels as beautiful as a silent film and features more than a few nods to this genre – in particular the stunning costuming and design of Georges Melies moon films.

Adventures akin to those of The Little Prince unfold through short vignettes that engage and delight the audience. Dreams of a Lonely Planet is a gentle break from reality that takes adventure into its natural dreamlike state.

Dreams of a Lonely Planet is on at The Blue Room Theatre until 1st October 2022. TICKETS

The Fourth Wall acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we engage in storytelling on – the Wadjhuk people of the Noongar nation. We pay respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.

Keep up with The Fourth Wall on Facebook and @fourth_wall_media on Instagram to see what we’re up to in 2022.
