Theatre for children and youth, Skopje
Hansel and Gretel are the most famous brother and sister in the literature for children. The Brothers Grimm have given them “eternal” life as generations and generations have told the story about the true love between siblings, their kindness and wish for a happy family.
Gretel is kind, a little timid, Hansel is curious and brave, but as they face the evil witch who has cast a spell on their father the reality and fantasy intertwine. The most important message of this story is that even in the hardest of times you should still have faith.
Can a story like this survive in today’s world when the children are given a variety of content? Can it fight the new technologies, the computer games and the 3D animation? It certainly can- and it is the power of theatre that will keep it alive.
