Extra information

The romantic comedy Midsummer Night’s Dream is set in 1600s Athens, where life is all about being productive. Sleeping has been banned for 30 years. In search of freedom and intimacy, four young lovers try to escape this rule imposed by older generations and flee into the woods. Here, they fall asleep for the first time. Surrounded by mythical forest creatures and a group of actors, they surrender to the intoxicating forces of imagination, life and love.
