Classic Hits presents Awkward Productions Grimace as part of the Capital E National Arts Festival 2011.

It’s a fantastical world when Little Miss Muffet is the one chasing the spider and Humpty Dumpty is climbing up Rapunzel’s hair — but it’s just what you can expect in this Gothic fairytale circus, where well-loved tales are turned on their heads, literally. Award-winning director Deborah Pope, who trained in Paris and London, is joined by performers famed for their physicality in a dazzling hybrid of circus, theatre, poetry and music inspired by the Brothers Grimm and Roald Dahl. Fast, fairytale fun that will astonish.

“Awkward produces a distinctive, innovative & breathtaking product, unique & New Zealand.” -Theatreview

Duration: 40 minutes
Ages: 4 -14 years
