“It sometimes feel hard to be hopeful and optimistic about the future when living through times of great uncertainty. But Danish company Fix&Foxy want us to have the courage to overcome fear and change our future and they are sending us Temi, a woman from the future who travels back to the here and now to tell us about our future, the joys and the woes. Like latter day Scrooges can we take control and change it for the better. The power is in our hands to imagine a different future that is better for all of us.”

Overview

This is a play about the future (and climate change. Not insomnia).

A woman walks on to the stage. She says she is from the future. She says that we have stopped dreaming. She says we can change everything.

She says that she can help end all our dystopian nightmares.

But we know plays don’t change the world. Right?

This is the UK premiere of Land Without Dreams, a hopeful, funny and courageous new show by experimental Copenhagen-based theatre company Fix&Foxy. Their previous works include radical versions of Pretty Woman, Twin Peaks, and Friends.

Critic reviews

Despite Temi Wilkey’s best efforts, including rolling in slime, Tue Biering’s play can’t decide whether it is a critique of utopianism or a message of reassurance

The Guardian

Intriguingly slippery mixture of Utopian monologue and thought experiment

The Stage

There is something meditative and almost hallucinatory about the piece, which culminates in a striking coup de theatre

WhatsOnStage

A weak and overly pompous play

Broadway World

Abstruse and patronising climate-change monologue

The Times

This well-meaning Danish show about how we should worry less and do more is a little grating until the end, when it becomes amazing

Time Out

Conventional Play Meets Performance Art

Londonist

An avant-garde message from the future

Evening Standard

Fix & Foxy’s materially sparse, philosophically expansive show

Exeunt
