"No-one is too old for stories. How could we be? Stories are in our blood. All of us."
In the midst of the Napoleonic wars, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm wanted to ensure that German culture outlasted the French occupation. The brothers enlisted the help of the best story-tellers they knew; Dortchen the “Wilde Girl”, Dorothea with the razor sharp tongue and Marie the girl locked up in her tower, and began collecting fairy tales.
Weaving together tales of girls in red capes, breadcrumb trails, witches and wolves; Fiercely Spun use puppetry, live music and movement to tell the untold tale of these forgotten female voices.
Fiercely Spun’s performance of Grimm: An Untold Tale is currently being developed at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts. The show is supported by The University of East Anglia, Santander and Mountview.
