Venue: CCP @ the Metropolitan Theater
The fairytale begins on Christmas Eve. Midway through busy preparations, the au pair begins tucking the children to sleep. As the house quiets down and every kid dozes off, Tala asks her minder to read her a fairy tale. She is told to wait, but the little girl decides to go ahead and reach out for her book. Arms stretched to the top of the closet, a key falls off, which would open doors to another world.
Here, everything is oversized and the inanimate comes to life. In this universe, fairytales from far and wide come together. There are princesses and prince charmings from all parts of the world. Tala wakes up the following morning, to a reality that is better than any fairytale: Christmas with family.
