“Nibble nibble little mouse, who is nibbling at my house?”

Undergrowth will be performed at the Wellington Performing Arts Centre, February 19th to 21st, as part of the New Zealand Fringe 2010.

This original collaboration by artist-storyteller Kristin Herman and musician-composer Peter Willis retells the story of Hansel and Gretel for adults. Spoken word, movement, found object art and music (piano, song, sound objects) are melded to create a hypnotic, dream-like rite of passage. Theatrical innovator Warwick Broadhead described it as “enchanting – in the true sense of the word”.

Kristin Herman has been a finalist in the James Wallace Art Awards and was the first artist-in-residence at the Britomart City Artists’ Network Project in Auckland. Her interest in storytelling and re-working European fairytales has found expression recently in experimental theatre. This has allowed her to combine painting and found object sculpture with writing, storytelling and performance design.

Peter Willis is a founding member of Auckland composer collective The Committee, contributing regularly as a composer, performer and concert organiser, and has had a number of his works broadcast on Radio New Zealand Concert. He also performs with Auckland free improvisation collective Vitamin S.
