About the artwork

Based upon Grimms’ fairy tale, “Hansel and Gretel”, this theatre play takes a unique form as if it is a combination of musical and road movie. Abandoned brother and sister wander in a deep forest and encounter various things as they explore. What will they see at the end of their journey like pilgrimage to the hell? In addition to the main play, “fragments” of side stories scattering around the theatre will engage audience with the story.
