AN EERIE, ELEGANT TALE WITHOUT WORDS ABOUT DEATH, LOVE, GRIEF AND MONSTERS.
After a girl’s granny passes away, she starts to suspect she is being pursued by the smoke demon shapeshifter from the old woman’s stories.
In the tradition of Spirited Away and Coraline, The Griegol is a mythic, gorgeously rendered dark fantasy for brave children and lovers of atmospheric theatre. From Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder, The Road That Wasn’t There) comes a strikingly inventive new work that conjures magic and laughter out of silhouettes, puppetry, live music and animation.
