To address and create an artistic language that will speak to young audiences, I decided to take on one of the great German fairy tales, Hansel and Gretel.

This tale has rarely been adapted for contemporary dance.

This tale had a lasting presence and impact on my childhood.

This tale draws on all the fantastic images that contribute to our collective unconscious anxieties.

This tale depicts the evil stepmother and the witch, both of whom serve simultaneously as symbols of kindness and cruelty.

This tale speaks to today’s society, in which food is viewed as a boundless means of seduction.
