Insomniac’s Fable

Words: Caitlin Finnerty

This unique and elegant production is a must-see for those seeking an enchanting exploration of the human psyche, masterfully wrapped in a haunting dreamscape.

The fusion of ballet, contemporary dance, and clowning adds a childlike quality to the performance, leaving us wondering who truly holds the reins in this dance of connection and control. Abrupt changes and chaotic sequences mimic the tumultuous nature of the mind, veiled by a curtain of mystery and projection.

The show’s use of shadow art and clever manipulation of light and shadows evoke dreamscapes that are both slightly unsettling and seductive. With a mix of classical music and eerie soundscapes, Insomniac’s Fable embraces melancholy and explores the darker corners of the mind. Insomniac’s Fable proves to be a hauntingly beautiful addition to From Start to Finnish—an international showcase project that highlights Finland’s remarkable performing arts tradition. This is a must-see for those seeking an unforgettable and thought-provoking experience that will have you humming Dream a Little Dream of Me for the rest of the day.
