Kneehigh's The Red Shoes at the Battersea Arts Centre
Kneehigh presents The Red Shoes, based on the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen, adapted and directed by Emma Rice, at the Battersea Arts Centre (BAC) in south London, 2 Mar to 9 April 2011.
The Red Shoes fuses live and recorded sound, visually and physically powerful images.
Red shoes. Don’t you just love them? They make you dance with delight and spin with possibilities. But what happens when you can’t stop dancing? What happens when you lose your footing? Would you dare to turn to the butcher to rid you of your heart-stoppingly beautiful red shoes? That’s just what our desperate heroine is compelled to do.
