STEPMOTHER / STEPFATHER

Commissioned by DanceEast

Stepmother leads us into a menacing world where macabre folklore meets the terrifying grotesque. Fairy tales distort into nightmares as familiar characters from Snow White to Hansel and Gretel are pursued by a force of monstrous and abusive stepmothers.

Stepfather tells the grisly tale of a twisted family situation, inspired by the folk punk Country Death Song from cult American band Violent Femmes. Spiralling into a hellish world of incest and murder, the search for redemption is played out beyond the grave.

★★★★ "A splendidly perverse double bill.

All horribly entertaining. A very dark treat indeed."
