Experience 'Dream Factory', an immersive performance installation that transports you into the real and imagined worlds of Neurodiverse and mixed ability artists. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, this extraordinary event explores themes of isolation, connection, and the longing for escapism. Join us for an unforgettable encounter in the No Vacancy gallery and dive into the transformative power of dreams.

About Rollercoaster Theatre Inc.

Rollercoaster Theatre is an independent, not-for-profit theatre company challenging broadly held misconceptions of disability. Our ensemble of trained actors was formed to counter the extreme lack of employment opportunities for people with mixed abilities within the arts. Our work provides a platform for actors to create theatre and film that defies expectations and challenges stereotypes. Through our work, we address the profound social isolation many of the ensemble members experience, and to significantly increase their level of self-worth, purposefulness and personal autonomy. Our intention is to support the individual artistic agency and development of each actor, creating theatre that cannot be relegated to therapy or benevolence but can stand as part of an artistic mainstream. Led by a team of professional theatre and film makers, our work aims to celebrate diverse perspectives and bring marginalised voices to the fore.
