dreamweaver course

Learn to improvise a dream-based musical long-form show, inspired by one of London's most popular groups The Dreamweaver Quartet.

Dreamweaver Quartet is an improvised musical comedy group that delves into the hidden meanings and surreal workings of our dreams.

They take the weirdest dreams submitted by audience members and weave them into disjointed musical narratives set in surreal far off lands, where up is down and down is left.

Dreamweaver Quartet will make your wildest dreams come true…and make you laugh whilst doing it!

And now for one season only they are at Hoopla with a brand new course teaching what they do!

You’ll be learning about improvised singing, unusual harmonies, vocal landscapes, musical counterpoint, dream analysis, experimental musical theatre, physical theatre and more, and then putting it all together into an improvised dream based musical show!
