About the event

Dancing City Preview, 28 - 29 June

As a preview to Dancing City on Saturday 30 June, Upswing presents a glorious acrobatic re-telling of Hans Christian Anderson’s twisted tale, The Red Shoes.

Gather round for the grim and glorious world of Hans Christian Anderson in this acrobatic re-telling of his twisted tale. Two characters find themselves at the edge of a mysterious forest; an unknown place that represents their inner temptations. This forbidden land can yield rewards for the intrepid trespasser, but beware, it’s a place where they’ll also be tested; where they’ll be both lost and found. A rich reimagining of the dark and disturbing fairytale in a forest of Chinese poles.

The performance of this unusual version of the favourite fairytale is a world premiere and explores themes of loss, journey, transformation, and using dance, Chinese poles and other circus techniques to create a new playful outdoor dance work.
