A deliciously dark double-bill
In a new commission by DanceEast, award-winning Director and Choreographer Arthur Pita, in collaboration with HeadSpaceDance, presents a wicked, darkly surreal double bill of dance.
Stepmother leads us into a menacing world where macabre folklore meets murder, lust and latex. Fairy tales distort into nightmares as familiar characters from Snow White to Hansel and Gretel are pursued by a force of monstrous and abusive stepmothers.
Stepfather tells the grisly tale of a twisted family situation, inspired by the folk-punk ‘Country Death Song’ from cult American band Violent Femmes. Spiralling into a hellish world of incest and murder, the search for redemption is played out beyond the grave.
★★★★ ‘All horribly entertaining. A very dark treat indeed.’
‘once tongue-in-cheek and eye-poppingly over-the-top’
