Hands I Burnt


WHEN: 23 Sep 2016 – 24 Sep 2016

COST: $16-23

Hands I Burnt is a re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersens’ The Little Match Girl. Through physical theatre and immersive installation, travel through a house of fragmented memories, experience The Little Match Girl's supposed life and watch The Storyteller relive the speculation and spectacle surrounding the tragic life of her father.

There are two major components to this piece, an immersive installation followed by a performance.

During the installation, the audience is invited to explore the space and learn about The Little Match Girl, her relationship to her father and the flurry of assumptions surrounding her death (as compiled by The Storyteller).

The Storyteller is an abstract creature who has discovered letters written by The Father; The Storyteller activates the letters and once activated, becomes a conduit for The Father to relive his version of the story.

Created and Directed by Aslam Abdus-samad | Starring Paul Musumeci | Music by DA Carter
