Hansel and Gretel: Lichfield Festival

Friday 13th of July to Saturday 14th of July
by Georgia (follow)
Hansel Gretel was inspired by the visual creations of artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins. His quirky, humorous Hansel and Gretel characters had appeared as prints, in picture books and as a toy theatre for Pollocks Toy Shop. It seemed a natural development to bring these ideas to the stage using a much-loved story framework to tell of a darker, glittering Hansel Gretel for the 21st century.

This unique touring production brings together the commissioned poetry of Simon Armitage in a new extended lyrical libretto entwined with chamber music by Matthew Kaner, one of the most original voices of his generation. The Hansel and Gretel characters originally created by Hicks-Jenkins have been reimagined and brought to life under his direction by three further outstanding artists: a puppet-maker, a model-maker and a paper-cutter.
