Hansel & Gretel
Uchenna Dance – A Fearless Dance Adventure!
The classic fairy tale Hansel & Gretel gets a dance makeover, Uchenna style!
This contemporary retelling of the classic fairy tale finds our two young heroes lost in London, overwhelmed by the sights, sounds and smells. Together the brave duo must outwit the adults to find their way back to their family in a show where kids are number one!
Vicki Igbokwe, choreographer and founder of Uchenna Dance (The Head Wrap Diaries, Our Mighty Groove), puts her unique twist on this well-known tale, weaving New York club styles of House, Waacking and Vogue, with African and Contemporary dance, in a show that will delight the whole family.
Expect to groove in your seat as you are transported to a world far from yours with some surprising similarities.
With an exciting original musical score by Ghanaian composer Kweku Aacht, the production is written by Gbolahan Obisesan, set and costume design by Lucy Sierra, lighting design by James Mackenzie and assistant choreography by Ingrid Mackinnon.
