The kingdom of Liverpool is devastated by unemployment and famine. It’s safer to be a gang member than to be alone and needles have replaced spindles. Not the best place for dreams about modern-day princesses and very far away from the nearest, happily-ever-after fairy tale castle.
A personal interpretation of the darker elements of the Briar Rose fairy tale, a fairy tale for grownups, created and performed by Compagnie Akselere’s artistic director, Colette Garrigan.
Creating a unique and threatening realm of objects and imaginative lighting, Garrigan integrates her native Liverpudlian voice with her adopted French tongue to describe a dangerous world where the blackest of humour co-exists with poetic stillness and insights.
