This immersive live event uses an advanced 3D sound system to create a cutting-edge narrative journey for the imagination.  Haunting and magical, To Sleep To Dream is a story of hope in darkness, the power within a dreamer and the boundless freedom found in imagination. Audience members are blindfolded to focus their senses and create an experience that truly unlocks the listener’s imagination - without sight-prompted visual imagery.

Set in a society where the act of dreaming is outlawed, Jack Richards - a man lost in the system - has a glimpse of a dream. When he sees a symbol from his dream in waking life he follows it and finds himself in an underground group of resistance dreamers living beneath the city. Jack must journey through his own subconscious and beyond to discover this magical realm and reclaim it for all.

EarFilms breathes new life into the tradition of storytelling, turning it into a hyper-real experience. EarFilms uses ambisonic sound, which is played on 19 speakers. The audience is effectively able to hear in 3D, as they do in the real world.

Meet the team of sound producers and designers, led by Daniel Marcus Clark and Chris Timpson, who created this amazing event.  After the performance enjoy The Imaginarium, an exhibition created by EarFilms where you can share your own experience of To Sleep to Dream, and understand that of others who experienced it differently from you.
