.h.g. Hänsel and Gretel Theatre Installation

.h.g. Hänsel and Gretel Theatre Installation

.h.g. Hänsel and Gretel Theatre Installation in 9 rooms

They told us Hansel and Gretel was a fairy tale. This beastly, cruel and merciless story is no fairy tale surely?

A story about food and hunger. About home and exile. About returning home.

A story about two children holding hands.  About smells and sights.Flesh and bones.

And suspended between Darkness and Light is a story waiting to be told.


.h.g. Hänsel and Gretel Theatre Installation is a reading of the classical fairy tale. The performance takes the shape of an installation that merges theatre and visual arts. The spectator walks through nine different physical-sensory rooms accompanied and guided by earphones. Each member goes through this experience individually for 30 minutes.

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.
