Fairytales belong to a deeply intimate and personal territory that defies age. Trickster-p again takes a fairytale as a theme, in order to work on a subject that belongs to the collective imaginary, disregarding facts to dive into a universe of images, memories and sensations evoked by the story. .h.g. is a reading – and revision – of the classical fairy tale of Hänsel and Gretel, in the shape of an installation where theatre and visual arts merge. The spectator walks through 9 different physical-sensory rooms accompanied and guided by earphones. Each room is a world on its own, a passage into universes suspended halfway between reality and dream: here the mind slips into the imaginary and the external spectator becomes integral part of the experience.

The installation evolves along the points of rupture and intersection of the story, in search of the links between the world of childhood and the world of adulthood. Hänsel and Gretel is a beastly, cruel and merciless story It is a story made of sounds and silences It is a story of bones and flesh, of food and hunger It is a story about home, then about forest, then again home It is the story of two children who go into the thick of the forest holding hands It is a story with both a clean and ferocious smell. Suspended between ferocity and childlike lightness, .h.g.strives to be an experience both aesthetical and sensorial.

About Trickster-p

Trickster-p arises out of the encounter of Cristina Galbiati and Ilija Luginbühl and is intended as an artistic research project which pushes at the boundaries and is at the crossroad of different art forms. Initially their research focused specifically on the centrality and physicality of the performer; as time went on, their focus has shifted from a more narrow definition of theatre to include expressions that transgress genre boundaries, both conceptually and formally resulting from the mixture of extremely heterogeneous artistic media.
