Hansel and Gretel

Hansel and Gretel is a fairy tale or so we all were told but then this beastly, cruel and merciless story is no fairy tale surely? Why because its a story about food and hunger and home and exile. Its about returning home, its a story about two children holding hands and about smells, sights, flesh and bones. It is a narration suspended between darkness and light is a story waiting to be told.

So this event mainly encompasses a reading of the classical fairy tale Hansel and Gretel. The performance takes the shape of an installation that merges theater and visual arts. The spectator walks through nine different physical-sensory rooms accompanied and guided by earphones. Each room is a world on its own, a passage into universes suspended halfway between reality and dream. Here the mind slips into the imaginary, and the external spectator becomes an integral part of the experience. The installation evolves along the points of rupture and intersection of the story, in search of the links between the world of childhood and the world of adulthood. Suspended between ferocity and being childlike, Hansel and Gretel strives to be an experience both aesthetic and very appealing to the senses.

Limitations for this event would include:

  • Entry only by prior booking. NO WALK INS.
  • The installation is not accessible on wheelchairs.
  • The journey is to be experienced alone.
  • Please note that each person is allowed entry only after a gap of five minutes.

So hurry! Discover the world of Hansel and Gretel through this extravaganza.
