Enter a world of light and shadow, of darkness and deception, a helter-skelter journey into ghostly landscapes and feasts of sugar.… The words of Simon Armitage retell the famous story in an extended lyrical poem entwined with chamber music by composer Matthew Kaner, one of the most original voices of his generation. With shadowplay and puppetry by Clive Hicks-Jenkins, Hansel and Gretel presents an evocative collection of art-forms, drawing audiences into a uneasy yet curiously familiar landscape.
The second part of our Friday the 13th doublebill!
