Grimm’s Fairy tales | The girl with no hands | Steven Mackey

1 December 2024, 20:00 - 21:00

‘The girl with no hands’ is a Grimm brothers’ fairy tale in which a poor miller makes a devilish deal, causing his poor daughter to lose her hands. But don’t be afraid of too much doom and gloom. There is a happy ending.

This new work The Girl With No Hands brings together music and story for Ensemble Klang and an actor. This dark tale from the brothers Grimm is adapted for this project by author/storyteller Adam Gidwitz, creator of the podcast Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest. The music embraces and enhances the occasional magic and whimsical discontinuity present in these fairy tales. And while the story is one of the darker tales from the brothers Grimm there is a happy ending!
