After a successful debut at Teatro Aveirense, the show “Hansel e Gretel” will now continue its run in our own home (Espaço Red Cloud Teatro de Marionetas), with sessions for the general public.
Here are the dates:

  • February 10th (Saturday), at 7:00 PM

You can make your reservation here.

This is an immersive show with live music, that addresses various techniques – from traditional to contemporary. It has the original tale from Brothers Grimm as its starting point, addressing its timeless and familiar dimensions, establishing various connections with the present time and reimagining the journey of Gretel and Hansel, from a perspective that also questions the meanings of the term “Witch” in human social history.

A production of Red Cloud Teatro de Marionetas, with the support of Direção-Geral das Artes and co-production with Teatro Aveirense and Teatro Municipal de Ourém.
