The Dictionary of Imaginary Places captures the complexity of urban life as it hurtles down the track, celebrating the intersection of mundanity and passion. Over 18 months Director Anna Tregloan and Sound Designer David Franzke rode on trains, travelling from the bustling centre to the lonely ends of the lines and back again. The conversations and tirades they overheard were recorded and transcribed.
These collected, unadulterated public words are shaped and edited into poetically built theatre which complements them with startling visuals and extended physicality. The Imaginary Places are in the gaps, the seepage between what we know or assume and what could actually be true. An original work that vibrates a collection of humanity within a vital and effervescent theatrical form, The Dictionary of Imaginary Places inspires our imagination into a place where reality and possibility are inextricably intertwined.
