Teatro Vivo present The Hunters Grimm

Dare you hunt out a life-saving story?

In a land where austerity bites the poorest, the powerful fight irrelevant battles and the weather grows wilder, the famous Brothers Grimm search for joyful stories.

And they need your help to see beyond our bleak reality in search of a hopeful story to feed the soul.

Your journey will take you down shadowy streets where you will meet an anarchic frog, comfort a desperate prince, dance with the musicians of Bremen and join a voyage to cure nightmares. Along the way you’ll hear stories of love, death, poverty, longing and sausages.

Critically acclaimed TEATRO VIVO has a well-deserved reputation of producing high-quality theatre “where you least expect it.” The company turns everyday environments into magical worlds; having previously staged Shakespeare in supermarkets, MOTHER COURAGE in an old weapons factory and THE ODYSSEY on the streets, tattoo parlours and pubs of Deptford.

THE HUNTERS GRIMM, inspired by the tales of the Brothers Grimm, invites audiences to roam local neighbourhoods and experience familiar streets in new and surprising ways. Find joy in the characters that populate these districts, celebrate the human spirit and forget the chaos of the rest of the world.

For the brave and curious only, THE HUNTERS GRIMM will start at each venue before heading on a exploration of streets, back alleys and local businesses. All hunters are requested to wear a stout pair of boots and clothes suited to the climate – for who knows where these stories will take them…

A family friendly version of the show will be performed on Weekend matinees.

Almost anywhere is a possible stage for this most creative of theatre groups. The challenge they set themselves is to break free of tradition, reinterpret the classics and collaborate with their audience. Absolutely not the West End. – The Guardian
