Shadowland Theatre presents
HANSEL AND GRETEL – A CASE STUDY
-a radical new take on the old tale-
August 9 – 14 at Ward's Island Ferry Docks
The acclaimed Shadowland Theatre presents Hansel and Gretel – A Case Study, an outdoor, all-ages take on the classic fairy tale from the Grimm Brothers. Meet a host of enchanting characters at Ward's Island Ferry Docks and follow their bread trail procession. Weaving through Ward's Island August 9 – 14, Hansel and Gretel – A Case Study takes audiences into the deep, dark forests of their imagination.
Combining live music from Brecht and Weill’s The Threepenny Opera, Shadowland’s theatre of spectacle, song and site-specific performance reveals the deeper meaning in the Hansel and Gretel rite of passage tale – with the help of none other than Sigmund Freud for a triple deutsch black forest treat!
With creatively masked characters, shadow puppetry, music, song, 15 stilt-dancing children and wild, visual humour, Shadowland casts a light on the façade of our sugar-coated civilization and reveals that it is only as thick as a gingerbread wall.
