At the time of our story, Cinderella lived, orphaned, confined as a servant in her own house for her new
step-mother and her clumsy and big bottomed sisters.
At the time of our story there was also a prince,
shy and awkward, who had never left the kingdom and to let him marry, the ruler arranged a party,
a dance, or rather two, maybe three. At the time of our story, everything was pretty much like it is today.
Envy and jealousy within the family, but also a world, which soon may reveal itself to be different from how it should
be, a world where unscrupulous mothers are willing to do anything to "grab" everything you can and that
which can not be achieved by manipulating her daughters as puppets to achieve their ends.
A world of educated daughters, spoilt and unable to understand and accept not only one-another but also those who are
foreign ... like their younger sister, who lives in their own home, without clumsy feet, light and soft as a feather.
This is the story of an encounter, of a redemption, of finding oneself, of comprehension even with a language,
that of dance, made up of words - which in order to be said, do not need a voice.
The show was created when theatre company Compagnia Factory met with dance company Elektra,
both with the desire to work together on a new adventure that explores a new language for both.
