Grimm's Fairy Tales

Category: Performance Design

Design Statement

This adaptation included ten of the well-known fairy tales, and was performed by a company of five actor-musicians. The Spiegeltent venue (a circular, wood-framed tent with mirror panels and stained glass) provided the starting point for the design, which used the warmth and grain of recycled plywood for its stage floor. Out of the central circular platform, a series of flip-up elements and trap doors were deployed to create changes of location. They also helped to stage some of the transformational events in the stories, such as a magical goat who could transform into a table laden with food, and the moment where the Wolf eats Little Red Cap and her Grandmother. The base costume for each actor took its cue from folk dress in the warm colours of the tent, and characters from the tales were in stronger, jewel colours for impact.
