“Mr Gingerbread Man” is a dance piece which has been created in Portugal.
It is based on the English fairytale about an old couple who decided as they couldn’t have any children; to bake one in a shape of a child with ginger dough and cinnamon. That cookie, once it was baked it got alive and it escaped. Allegorically, i was inspired by this fairytale to research deeply a woman’s life.
The project consists of three parts which symbolise three different phases in a woman’s life. The latest version has been presented in Athens as a site-specific dance piece
