Manipulate Festival - Sleeping Beauty @ Perth Theatre

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
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.
