Hansel & Gretel
Lost Gardens of Heligan Cornwall: August -September 2017
Directed by Sally Knight. Text by Callum Mitchell. Music by Seamas Carey
For this show I was inspired by Gene Autry and all the Singing Cowboys, Carl Stalling and The Brothers Grimm. It was an outdoor dance show throughout the gardens. I played accordion & banjo live, produced the sound design, musically directed and narrated.
"Hansel & Gretel are in the depths of magical woodland but desperate to find their way home. From stones to crumbs, can they follow their trail or will they be side-tracked by the allure of that sticky, sweet home in the woods? And what about the little old lady within? She seems positively lovely… This Summer, Cscape turn the twisting pathways at The Lost Gardens of Heligan in to an evening of story-telling, dance, music, design and installation. Join them on an immersive journey through the gardens. Prepare for darkness, light, magic and wonder… and maybe even a few ‘sweeties’ along the way!"
