A group of thespians stumble upon an ominous book filled with grisly and gory tales. Will the thespians be bound to act as the book's puppets, destined for a life of performing, but never truly free?
Twisted Tales flips performance conformity on it's head and introduces new and innovative ways of performing "boundary pushing theatre". Our "visually stunning" piece relies solely on the actor's arsenal to create props, set, costume, and sound to bring our world to life. Our cast of six regal actors are confined to the space of a gym mat while showcasing four folk tales which all end with a twist.
We explore the stories we all know love, from Red Riding Hood's gruesome demise, to the Saga of the almighty Vikings, all in a way that you have never seen before!
You will be entranced with the intricacy, "tight transitions, effective soundscapes and carefully considered choreography". Twisted Tales combines theatre with comedy for all, meaning "there are a good number of laughs to be had too".
