Titanic: Ship of Dreams
Homegrown theater company Dreamweaver is gearing up for their most ambitious show yet, an immersive theater production on the water. Ship of Dreams: The Titanic Experience is a site-specific play staged entirely on a real live ship on the Huangpu River. Audience members, or “passengers,” first receive a personalized invitation in the mail, which includes an admission ticket, a Titanic passport and money to be used on the boat. Like on the real Titanic, guests are broken up into two sections: first class and third class, with a different adventure awaiting each. While minimal dialogue is used, a combination of physical theater, mime, song, and dance are incorporated to help unfold the story of familiar Titanic characters from the film, as well as real-life historical figures. Tickets are ¥680-5,000. Get your ticket aboard now.
