Hansel & Gretel, and Me
Hansel & Gretel, and Me is a revolutionary creative project. Participants of all ages from across Scotland come together and engaged with their national dance company, helping to shape Scottish Ballet’s brand new production of Hansel & Gretel.
This exciting project began in autumn 2012 with:
Creative Writing Competitions
Visual Art Competition
The Breadcrumb Trail
The Scotsman, author Louise Welsh, The National Library of Scotland and The National Galleries of Scotland all worked on the projects and assisted Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director Christopher Hampson in judging the final entrants. Click here to read the winning entry from the adult competition.
The final phase of Hansel & Gretel, and Me allowed gifted and talented young dancers from all backgrounds and from all across Scotland the chance to perform in Hansel & Gretel. Working with Christopher Hampson and Education officers, they are developing their dance technique and choreography skills as well as contributing their own choreographic ideas.
