Sadler’s Wells Family Weekend 2018: balletLORENT – Rumpelstiltskin from 30th to 31st March 2018

balletLORENT returns to Sadler’s Wells with another fantastical dance-theatre fairy-tale adaptation for Sadler’s Wells Family Weekend, presenting Rumpelstiltskin.

Family Weekend is an annual jam-packed festival that has run since 2008, offering entertainment for all ages including performances, workshops, arts and crafts activities and games. A performance in the Lilian Baylis Studio and details of the workshops are to be announced.

Directed by Liv Lorent and retold by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, Rumpelstiltskin is the story of the outsider, shunned for being different. Set in a world of spinning wheels, kings and queens, this is a tale of love, loss and magic powers.

The production has a score by Doctor Who composer Murray Gold, costumes designed by Michele Clapton (Game of Thrones), and narration by actor Ben Crompton.

Joining the professional cast are Islington school children from Hugh Myddelton and Rotherfield primary schools, alongside older adults from local community groups.

Rumpelstiltskin is the third instalment of balletLORENT’s fairy tale trilogy, following the company’s acclaimed interpretations of Rapunzel and Snow White. Rumpelstiltskin comes to Sadler’s Wells as part of a UK tour that includes dates in Pitlochry, Huddersfield, Salford, Darlington, Aberdeen, Inverness and Doncaster.
