HANSEL & GRETEL


Uchenna Dance & The Place Theatre

The classic fairy tale gets a dance makeover.

Our two heroes find themselves lost in a big city, overwhelmed by the sights, sounds and smells. Together the brave duo must outwit the adults to find their way back to their family in a show where kids are number one!

Work Place Artist Vicki Igbokwe puts her unique Uchenna Dance twist (The Head Wrap Diaries) on the much-loved story, weaving dance styles House, Waacking and Vogue, with African and Contemporary Dance.

This festive treat will delight the whole family and leave them grooving right up until Christmas Eve!

With an exciting original musical score by Ghanaian composer Kweku Aacht, the production is written by Gbolahan Obisesan, set and costume design by Lucy Sierra, lighting design by James Mackenzie and assistant choreography by Ingrid Mackinnon.
