Fairytales Gone Bad
Archive :: production:T2086054406, kids show:S0604384842, venue:V182
Award-winning performance poet Joseph Coelho unravels the true stories behind the happily ever after fairytales. An enchanting performance for young and old alike. After both shows there will be a chance to meet Joseph and purchase signed copies of his books, as well as talk about his work. What is Zombie-rella / Blood-red Hood about? Zombie-rella plays with the idea that good is beautiful and ugly is bad. Cinderella is not simply turned into a princess, she dies and becomes a zombie - but for this particular prince, that is perfect! Blood-Red Hood shows us a more realistic version of the popular tale, one where humans are the top predator and the natural world is merely fleeing in our path. Little Red is little but she is not weak, she is a hunter and a morally questionable one at that.
