The Snow Queen cast and creative team fly out next week for our first tour of India.
Trestle’s Artistic Director, Emily Gray, has already spent a week visiting Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai ahead of the tour introducing Trestle’s unique mask and physical theatre story-telling styles, influenced by The Snow Queen, to Indian teachers and professionals. Through her delivery of workshops she has experienced some ‘brilliant and revolutionary work’.
‘For the [first] time ever [Trestle] masks arrive in India. Masks in saris work a treat. Wonderful day at Hari Shree Vidyalayam, Chennai’ - Emily Gray
The Snow Queen’s premiere tour performances take place at The Hindu MetroPlus Theatre Fest in Chennai on 10th August; an established event offering ‘a sampling of great national and international theatre’ [http://www.thehindu.com/arts/theatre/]. The show then travels to Mumbai and on to Bangalore for its final tour performances.
