“A story of love, obsession, grief and reconcilia on in a show made as much for adults as it is for children.”
The final part of our fairytale trilogy, this is an original adaptation of the beloved Grimm Brothers tale of Rumpelstiltskin, directed by Liv Lorent and retold by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy.
“What will you give me if I spin straw into gold for you?”
Rumpelstiltskin is the story of the outsider shunned for being different. He is the original super mutant, and fairytale X-man.
“...the spirit of his mother was with him always... her love for him was so strong that the boy learned to turn ordinary things into gold.”
With a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), narration by actor Ben Crompton (Game of Thrones), set design by Phil Eddolls, and lighting design by Malcolm Rippeth and Michael Morgan, this is dance theatre for 21st Century family audiences.
Performed by 8 of balletLORENT’s professional dancers, who are joined by an inter-generational cast of children (aged 4-9 yrs) and elderly people (aged 65+ yrs) who have been sourced through local primary schools, and community groups. This really is a show for all the family!
