New venue, The Berry Theatre in Hedge End, Southampton, invited Hiccup Theatre to collaborate with them and two other South East based theatre Companies (Peut-etre and Unpacked) to make their first Christmas show in 2011.
Sarah directed the show and Ivan composed the music and played the role of The Woodcutter. Hiccup’s Director Sarah Brigham led the overall artistic process. We began by engaging in a series of development days with all three companies. We shared practice, got to know each other and developed our ideas on the process. We then brought the actors in and devised the performance – a unique take on the classic Grimm Brother’s Tale.
Alongside this production Hiccup Theatre delivered a number of participatory workshops.
