Danish theatre company Gruppe 38 are returning to Sydney with their adaption of Hansel and Gretel. My son and I saw their wonderful production of The little Match Girl a few years ago and I have already booked the whole family in to see the new show in August.
The darkest of The Brothers Grimm fairytales is brought to hair-raising life using storytelling and stunning visuals in this enchanting re-working. Accompanied by an onstage musician, the narrator seamlessly transitions between the characters of Hansel, Gretel and the evil witch as she magically illustrates the tale using light and projections.
Brother and sister, Hansel and Gretel are abandoned in a forest. They stumble upon a delicious gingerbread house that is owned by an evil witch who secretly wishes to eat them. They eventually escape and are reunited with their father. This tale of this abandoned brother and sister is about fighting against life’s difficulties and distinguishing between good and evil.
