Hansel and Gre­tel, directed by Watabe Saburo

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

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.
