The Red Shoes archiveOur heroine can't resist her red shoes. They make her dance with delight, prance with possibilities. But what happens when she can t get them off? What happens when she can t stop dancing? She dances past life and love, sex and death and at last turns to the executioner to rid her of her heart-stopping beautiful red shoes. This is a dark circus, a cracked cabaret where anything is possible and nothing is probable. Music to make your toes tap, images to make your mouth water and a story to make your heart pound, the magnificent and menacing world of the fairy tale is revealed. Kneehigh’s award-winning production of The Red Shoes was first performed in 2002. Passionate, funny and rude, it tells Hans Christian Andersen’s menacing fairy tale through a surreal and sensuous mix of theatre, dance, music and imagery.
