balletLORENT present a new version of the classic fairytale Rapunzel written by Carol Ann Duffy and co-produced with Northern Stage.

Artistic Director, Liv Lorent who has been inspired by the dark themes of this fairy story is working with a strong team of collaborators with world-class recognition and eight of balletLORENT's talented dancers to create this full-length work for middle to large-scale venues.

Liv has said; "Most of us remember Rapunzel's hair and the tower, but we're a bit hazy on the rest of the story. It has been told again and again and reinterpreted for children of today through versions like Disney's Tangled, but we're telling an older, slightly darker version, more akin to its Grimm tale origins. We've included a part of the story which is usually neglected and will be telling it through the eyes of different characters."

Collaborators include: Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate (Scenario Writer); Murray Gold (Music); Phil Eddolls (Set Design); Michele Clapton (Costume); Malcolm Rippeth (Lighting Design) and Lesley Sharp (Narration).
