Grimm is an engaging performance and panel discussion that combines movement and storytelling to address social issues through three fairy tales. The work explores well- and lesser-known themes in The Frog Prince, Cinderella, and the Caribbean legend The Soucouyant to present important themes that relate to topics of social concern, including gender and racial issues and immigrant relations. Grimm aims to spark conversation about cultural values and act as an artistic vehicle to respond to our county’s widening, divisive atmosphere. All performances include “Act 2,” in which audience members will talk with a panel of scholars and community members, the dancers, and each other about the important issues raised in the performance. Though fairy tales are often associated with children, the stories contain profound, relevant content worth exploring with mature audiences to create new approaches to social concerns.
