Grimm Tales

TU Dublin Conservatoire

The Brothers Grimm stories have been retold countless times over the past two centuries, and these fairy tales present us with a World of fantastical stories that exist in enchanted forests, stone castles, soaring towers and bottomless seas, featuring archetypal characters. These tales are still resonant for these challenging and frequently bizarre times we live in, as Schiller writes: ‘Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales told to me in my childhood than in the truth taught by life’.

Now, TU Dublin Conservatoire’s graduating year 3 Drama class present a vivid, exciting, physically poetic and visually arresting version of GRIMM TALES, by Phillip Pullman, and adapted for the stage by Phillip Wilson, where these stories will be told with infectious energy, a bold physical swiftness of play, with a great deal of fun for all our audience!

Directed by Michael McCabe, with a beautiful design by Lisa Krugel, original composition by Brian Wynne and choreography by Ella Clarke, these fairy tales will be accompanied by an incredible live 8 piece orchestra under the musical direction of Kevin Hanafin, and promises with the incredible creative talent of 14 actors to be a magical theatre production that you simply will not wish to miss.
