The Fairytale Library
Immediate, immersive, intimate theatre
The gathering of fairytale moments is a work of one-on-one theatre: a librarian, and one participant talking about a story that has attached itself to them without them even realising. It is the teasing out of the hook, and what came away attached to it. These moments are captured in handmade books and kept in tiny suitcases. Sometimes there are also drawings accompanying the stories.
