In association with Assemble Fest 2015
Hull, Newland Ave, Saturday 23 May 2015
Part of Lyn Gardner's Guardian Theatre Picks of the Week- 22.05.15
Commissioned by Assemble Fest, we made a promenade adaptation of the Brothers Grimm classic Hansel and Gretel, performed on Newland Avenue.
The story followed a young homeless lad, Hansel, as he shared the tale of how he and his sister, Gretel found themselves with the misfortune of meeting a modern-day witch, whose only wish was to use and exploit the young duo.
The performances used silent disco headsets, a travelling sound designer, live and recorded music and a pop-up set to transport viewers into Hansel and Gretel’s world. Still a fairy tale at heart, it was delivered in a way that transformed familiar surroundings into something far more sinister and exciting.
