DanceXchange at Birmingham Hippodrome presents Arthur Pita & HeadSpaceDance
STEPMOTHER | STEPFATHER
A wickedly, dark double-bill. A cheery tale of murder, lust, latex and suicide.
Fairytales distort into nightmares as Snow White & Rapunzel are pursued by a force of cruel Stepmothers, in turn discoveringwhat drives these wicked women on.
Stepfather is inspired the US folk-punk band Violent Femmes’ Country Death Song. Drawn from a real-life 19th-century case in which a man was convicted of murdering his stepdaughter by throwing her down a well, with the search for redemption is played out beyond the grave.
‘**** All horribly entertaining. A very dark treat indeed.’ THE OBSERVER
Contains scenes of violence and some adult language.
