The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood


Mistress Ginger plays the title role in this adult adaptation of the classic fairy tale.

Presented by collective unconscious performance

World Premiere
Directed and Designed by David Hanzal
Written by Katharine Sherman
Choreographed by Justin Leaf


Cursed at birth by an evil fairy, Beauty is destined to prick her finger and sleep for 100 years at the age of 16. But what were the dreams that Sleeping Beauty had before she woke up? Through her active dream-life, Beauty's fairy tale past is unspun from the deeply familiar and woven anew, as she experiences love, loss, and the possibility of a waking life. The Sleeping Beauty in the Wood is a new, ensemble-created performance work that integrates puppets, masks, movement, and music to evoke Beauty's dark, sensual, and subversive world of dreams.
