Hansel and Gre­tel, di­rected by Watabe Saburo

Hansel and Gre­tel, di­rected by Watabe Saburo and per­formed by Theater Com­pany Hikosen, takes au­di­ences into a fan­ci­ful world filled with gor­geous sets, cre­atively de­signed dolls and stun­ning vis­ual ef­fects. In the heart of a dark for­est, two chil­dren of a poor car­pen­ter dis­cover a house made out of cake and candy, which just hap­pens to be owned by a can­ni­bal­is­tic witch. Com­bin­ing music, dance and a de­sign in­spired by Ja­panese anime, the play re­places the dark­ness of the orig­i­nal Broth­ers Grimm tale with hu­mor and a light­hearted spirit. It also teaches im­por­tant lessons about how through keep­ing our wits and be­ing brave we can out­wit the bad­dies. Date: From March 20 to 31, 10:30 am & 14:30 pm Venue: Roewe The­atre Ad­dress: 800 Miao­jiang Road ૳ࢅ੥800ރ Call 6366-0000 for more in­for­ma­tion
