“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 to bake a cookie in the shape of a child with ginger dough and cinnamon. That cookie, once it was baked it got alive and escaped. Allegorically, I was inspired by this fairytale to deeply research three different phases in a woman’s life.
The latest version has been presented in Athens as a site-specific dance piece.
