Hansel & Gretel
- Show me:
An imaginative new take on a favourite fairy tale, Uchenna Dance’s twist to this well-known story weaves Creative Director and Choreographer, Vicki Igbokwe’s fierce and distinctive dance styles of House, Waacking, Vogue, African and Contemporary dance, to deliver a magical and relatable retelling of Hansel and Gretel.
Told from the children’s perspective, our two young heroes brave a big journey and find themselves lost in London, overwhelmed by the sights, sounds and smells. Separated from their kind guardian, the clever duo must use their smarts and determination to outwit the adults and find a way for their little modern family to stay together in a show where kids are number one!
With an exciting original musical score by Ghanaian composer Kweku Aacht, the production is written by Gbolahan Obisesan, set and costume design by Lucy Sierra, lighting design by James Mackenzie and assistant choreography by Ingrid Mackinnon.
