When aiming to tap into the collective imagination of an audience, fairy tales are always a fantastic place to start. These stories are baked into our collective consciousness from childhood and the reimagining and reinterpretation of them often gives life to evocative work, as a result of this collective understanding. The Vaults, ever home to the experimental, inventive and out there within the theatrical spectrum, is our venue for this evening as we prepare to enter Shotgun Carousel’s Red … [Read more...]

This isn’t one of those productions where the company get members of the audience to hold props for them, or shout out suggestions. No, from the minute you step over the … [Read more...]
