The old cautionary tales and warnings from our ancestors are still relevant today, beyond the happily ever after.
Sleeping Beauty is a performance that stretches and twists the familiar fable in a quest to find its contemporary relevance. Watch as the fairy tale is playfully unpicked and de-Disney-fied, revealing the story of a mass-culture asleep to our own ethical responsibilities.
Featuring co-creators Renée Newman and Ian Sinclair, with music by Mei Saraswati, Sleeping Beauty is a tale of nothingness, honesty and beauty that takes a wry and quirky look at the simplicity, and complexity, of life.
