Oxford Playhouse welcomes balletLORENT’s dance theatre adaptation of the well-loved Brother’s Grimm fairytale Snow White.  Known for their fantastical and visually stunning productions, leading UK dance company balletLORENT present this new work charged with emotion through haunting music and exquisite storytelling.  Reimagined through dance and music, Director and Choreographer Liv Lorent brings to life Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy’s masterful writing creating a visually powerful performance.

A mirror names, and ultimately curses, a beautiful young woman, ‘the fairest of them all’, throwing her mother into a jealous rage. Fleeing from those set to capture her, Snow White stumbles across seven miners deep in the forest, hoping to forge a new life away from fear. A captivating tale with all the classic elements: red apples, magical mirrors and the Evil Queen.

The success of Rapunzel has inspired Artistic Director Liv Lorent and her team of world class collaborators to work together to create a trilogy of fairytales, of which Snow White is the second. Carol Ann Duffy, Murray Gold, Phil Eddolls and Malcolm Rippeth have joined Liv Lorent and the balletLORENT team once again, alongside new collaborators Libby Everall (Costume Design) and Lindsay Duncan (Narrator), for this dance theatre adaptation created for family audiences, co-produced by Northern Stage and commissioned by Sadler’s Wells.  All the family are invited to delve into the magical story of Snow White: she with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony.
