The Girl with incredibly long hair, is an ambitious immersive work for young audiences. It takes the story of Rapunzel and reimagines it for our times, where we don’t expect the girl to need saving by the boy, and in which female characters can shape their own destiny. This project is inspired by our experiences of telling stories to our own children and wanting them to experience high quality theatre, which doesn’t perpetuate sexist stereotypes.
This September we be began R&D on the project, working in partnership with Blackwood Miners Institute and Wales Millennium Centre with support from Arts Council of Wales, National Lottery, Welsh Government & Creu Cymru. Over a three week period we developed the project with three performers, set & sound designers, an illustrator, a songwriter and access consultants.
