Dansgezelschap De Stilte & Pianoduo Mephisto
A simple story with a sad start and a happy ending. Unfortunately, a director was recruited for this performance who does not understand much of the story. In all fairness, it is no easy job either. After all, how can one fulfil all the roles with only two dancers? Father, Cinderella, two step-sisters, step-mother, the fairy, the prince ...?
'The director starts to doubt the outcome and forgets the story ... Who will help her?'
To ensure that the performance runs smoothly, the director decides to stay on stage and take on the roles of stepmother and fairy herself. She also takes care of all the props. A glass slipper, a chest, some clothes, a broom, a chimney, a carriage and a clock are all familiar items. But what does one do with a pumpkin, mice and rats in a theatre? The director has a lot to think about. That is possible when the music plays and the dancers dance.
She is emotionally tossed around from sad to cheerful, from angry to insecure; she is confused, hurt and deeply moved. It is not easy to process all these emotions and all the while tell the dancers and musicians what to do. She starts to doubt the outcome and forgets the story ... Who will help her?
