(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Theatre Mitu, the professional theatre company in residence at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD), will return for its third public production in Abu Dhabi.

This time it will perform August Strindberg's 1901 classic, A Dream Play. The production will have a five-performance run from October 17 to 20 at the NYUAD Campus.

"The play is beautiful and has a number of symbolically charged moments taking on some of the questions we've been asking forever," said Ruben Polendo, director of Theatre Mitu and head of NYUAD's Theatre Programme.

"A theme that particularly stands out is the attachment individuals develop towards their function in society, and the way it can both define and confine them. The play is about balance and letting go, it touches on family, age, love, work, among other things," he added.

The play, adapted and directed by Ruben Polendo, tells the story of a mythological being who descends to earth to understand humans.

A marked departure from the traditional model of storytelling in the early 20th century, A Dream Play was an early exploration into dramatic expressionism.

Polendo's staging, using Mitu's 'Whole Theatre' approach, incorporates a range of hyper-theatrical global performance traditions, such as Japanese Noh and Kabuki or the Indian Kathakali, energising the text with acrobatic physicality, modernist design, and an impactful original music score.
