alight, sweet hearted

created by Karen Li

April 5-21, 2024

alight, sweet hearted is an immersive performance interweaving food, lyrical prose, and gestural dance. It retells the story of Hansel and Gretel from the perspective of how the characters mistreat each other through food, and aims to draw parallels between the famine of the original fairytale and the realities of our modern day food deserts. It engages all five senses by creating a tactile environment for the audience to walk through, where they taste the food from the world of the story and encounter characters who are represented through sound, scent, and light.
