The Red Shoes
The Red Shoes at the Gate Theatre is a contemporary retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale.
This new version by Nancy Harris is a tale of dance, desire and destruction. Part Theatre, part dance, its a dazzling show perfect for the Christmas season.
It tells the story of an orphan girl who is adopted by a wealthy Dublin family and given a pair of beautiful red shoes. At first it seems her dreams have come true but that quickly changes.
Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tales are universally read and loved by both children and adults alike but we rarely see these on stage. This new commission will bring together some of Ireland’s most celebrated artists and one of Denmark’s most famous fairytales
