Cologne, Sculpture Park Cologne | Ovid's dream

A danced dream world of light and shadow

Light installations, burning shoes, dancing shadows: Theater Anu transforms the grounds of Skulpturenpark Köln into a garden of transformations - a dream world of light and shadow.
Mysterious, sensual and touching at the same time. The international ensemble traces the 2000-year-old mystery of the "Metamorphoses" by the Roman poet Ovid: Why does he transform his heroines and heroes into trees, birds, stones or rivers instead of into better people?

The Berlin company shows selected stories of the "Metamorphoses": Orpheus & Eurydice, Phaeton, Pygmalion... - combined with dance, body art, sound installation and a play of light and shadow.
Poetic, mystical, hypnotic: let yourself be carried away into a garden of human passions!

Winner of the Audience Award "Best Open Air Production", Holzminden 2015

Ovid's Dream will also take place in light to medium rain (except for severe weather warning, storm etc.). We recommend sturdy shoes and rainwear. Please refrain from using umbrellas. There are not always paved paths. Unfortunately, this means that the production can only be experienced with limited accessibility. If the event has to be cancelled for weather reasons before one hour of performance time has been completed, the ticket entitles the holder to admission on a further performance date of Ovid's dream.
