Live music, inventive lighting, movement and rich theatricality turn an everyday experience in a child’s life into an extraordinary event. Read More >

Brilliant is a visual theatre piece about light created by Young Vic associate company Fevered Sleep. Award-winning director David Harradine uses live music, inventive lighting, movement and rich theatricality to turn an everyday experience in a child’s life into an extraordinary event.

In Brilliant the audience is asked to imagine it’s bedtime; imagine it’s time to turn out the light; imagine the moon outside and the stars, bright; imagine a forest of flickering torches where the moon comes down to play; imagine being in a place that is made of light; imagine how brilliant that would be.

Brilliant is the final section of Fevered Sleep’s trilogy of work for young audiences, which includes Feast Your Eyes and And The Rain Falls Down. In 2008 it was nominated for the Best Show for Children and Young People TMA Award.
