Prague Fringe: Hansel and Gretel the End of the Fairy Tale
Adults Monodrama / Hansel and Gretel the End of the Fairy Tale "
Prague fringe festival 2009
A combination of a fairy tale and an Autobiography from the view point of a girl telling her family story. This is an adult monodrama from the age for 15+years old. A story teller performing to an audience of children and adults, right after her visit to the cemetery. She begins to tell the fairy tale "Hansel and Gretel", but because of the difficult mood she is in…she is overwhelmed by memories of her past: her family - Jews parents , children family relation ship, two brothers two choices… some magical scenery of her childhood and some are hard… the play which was meant to be an innocent fairy tale evolves into a touching drama …..
the play incorporates several theoretical styles: acting, puppetry, story-teller , dancing, music playing….
(The play’s length is one hour and ten minutes; afterwards the audience is invited to stay for a talk).
By Florence Fisch-Hacham (based on a personal story - for 15 +years old)
Directed by Ilan Ziv-Zontag
