The Three Snake Leaves - Fairy Tales For Grown-Ups From The Brothers Grimm: Company Of Storytellers

Music: Gillian Stevens, Dylan Fowler

The forest is a place where marvels gleam in the shadows and the mysterious snake leaves bring transformation. Two hundred years after the Grimms’ magnificent collection of stories was first published, The Company of Storytellers, pioneers of the British performance storytelling revival, reform to bring their seminal piece, The Three Snake Leaves, to the stage once more, with newly devised music by Dylan Fowler and Gillian Stevens.

In a subtle, beguiling and seamless performance, Hugh Lupton, Ben Haggarty and Sally Pomme Clayton journey deep into a half-remembered realm of grown-up fairy tale and myth. Conjuring up a primitive metaphorical world, they unpick a rich tangle of humorous, moving and cruel stories in an enchanted search for contemporary wisdom. ‘A wonderful, intricate piece about storytelling and the possibilities of redemption.’ – The Independent.
