The unique production incorporates a mature twist to the old tale known worldwide so well.
The Princess is played by world-renowned prima ballerina Diana Vishneva and international ballet school founder Mi Deng.
Deng takes on the role of the Princess in Atlanta, Dallas, and Houston. Performing alongside Deng is dancer Denis Savin, who will play the role of the Prince in Dallas and Houston. International dance star, Marijn Rademaker, will play the
role of the Prince in New York, Atlanta, Chicago, and Boston.
During the dream-like performance, each dance movement of the Princess is met by eight supporting dancers as well as larger-than-life demon and angel avatars, mimicking their moves. The demons and angel were imagined and visualized by Tobias Gremmler, famed digital artist that has developed design solutions for Apple, Samsung, Swarovski and Sony in addition to working with Bjork.
“Sleeping Beauty Dreams brings the dream realm to life. This is a theatrical experience unlike anything else you can see right now,” says Gremmler. “The incorporation of real-time data and revolutionary technology allow us to create digital avatars — also known as the demons and angels — that mimic Sleeping Beauty in her dreamscape. We believe this immersive experience for the audience is the future of performing arts.”
Audiences are physically and emotionally moved by the vibrating beats of electronic music by famed EDM pioneer, NOISIA’s Thijs de Vlieger, who wrote the original score. His music has been featured in Hollywood blockbusters and he has worked with some of the world’s biggest artists including Skrillex and deadmau5.
Sleeping Beauty Dreams is led by a team of notable industry creatives including choreographer and creative director Edward Clug, and costume designer Jorge Muskus. 4U2C, the Montreal-based creative studio known for its multimedia experiences for live performance, are the engineers behind Sleeping Beauty Dreams, translating Gremmler’s creative vision into a world-class experience for audiences.
