Creating a dreamy, magical world befitting of the art and heritage space Tai Kwun, internationally-acclaimed French theatre company Compagnie des Quidams presents Herbert’s Dream, an outdoor theatre show that has been enchanting audiences around the world. Herbert's Dream begins with a short procession led by mysterious stilted figures. Communicating solely in a mysterious language of silence and articulated gestures, they hold strange, secret meetings, approaching and withdrawing as if inviting others to follow. Step-by-step, the figures grow, transforming into billowing masses as the haunting procession culminates into a fantastic finale. Unearthly and entrancing, this unique and other-worldly parade will mesmerise Tai Kwun visitors.

The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes.

This performance contains pyrotechnic effects.
