The Nightmare Dreamer

The Nightmare Dreamer
Tattooed Potato
11 – 29 June

What happens when we give away our darkness?

Suppose you had nightmares. Terrible nightmares. Every night. Night after night. Exhausted and distraught, where could you turn for rest and relief?

Suppose there were someone who could dream your nightmares for you, so you could have deep sleep and sweet dreams. That someone is the Nightmare Dreamer.

Tattooed Potato presents a piece of devised physical theatre exploring the internal places we would rather not visit. Those who use the Nightmare Dreamer’s help get a good night’s sleep, but their waking lives change in ways they hadn’t imagined.

The Nightmare Dreamer is Tattooed Potato’s first London production, re-imagined and re-worked following a run in Washington in 2012 where it created “vivid ways into the netherworld of distressed slumber” (The Washington Post).
