We are excited for the new offering from Shaking the Tree where we collaborated on the set design. The show runs from October 9th to November 5th, 2016. From the theater’s website:
Following in the tradition of Shaking the Tree’s previous fall offerings — Masque of the Red Death, Wilde Tales, and The Tripping Point — our newest offering, Head. Hands. Feet. brings you tales of darkness, dismemberment, and the immersive visual landscape that you’ve come to love, combining three lesser-known fairy tales with an epic Greek tragedy.
The first ensemble-devised act includes Bluebeard by Charles Perrault, The Red Shoes by Hans Christian Anderson, and The Handless Maiden by The Brothers Grimm; three unscripted fairy tales whose female protagonists are placed in the most dire and perilous situations imaginable: all of them are in danger of dismemberment! In an epic second act, Euripides’ Iphigenia at Aulis adapted by Irish playwright Edna O’Brien, we catapult into the action resulting in all further Greek dramas: the sacrifice of the Innocent for the benefit of War.
