WIDE SLUMBER for lepidopterists  is an hour long music theatre performance

inspired by the award-winning book by A.rawlings, pairing sleep and dream studies with lepidoptery

(the study of butterflies and moths). 

 

A small ensemble of musicians, three singers and a performer conjure an ethereal and visceral world of cyclic metamorphosis. WIDE SLUMBER for lepidopterists is produced by VaVaVoom Theatre and Bedroom Community and was premiered in May 2014, at the 28th edition of Reykjavik Arts Festival. It won the Music Theatre Now Awards in 2016
