Littered with exotic bric-a-brac, this slumbering house dreams wistfully of its past, conjuring memories, that delight the curious, in each room and with each object.
Inspired by the natural playfulness of children, this incredible interactive labyrinth pushes the boundaries of our imagination with an innovative combination of robotics, performers and projections – and anything within reach can be touched and explored.
This immersive adventure excites all of the senses.

After I had gone through the house myself, I was amused to see the adult audience members for that session lining up with the children for their costumes: everyone looked ridiculously pleased.
If you have children in your life who are around 5 to 10, this is something they won’t forget. Neither will you. AUSSIETHEATRE.COM

I didn’t want to leave The House of Dreaming. Neither did my artistic advisor, five-year-old Scout. There’s picture books (good ones) and origami in the waiting room and you get a costume and a magic talisman ... The experience is how I remember first reading picture books. They were so real that I felt I was in the pages and living it. ANNE-MARIE PEARD - AUSSIETHEATRE.COM
