Rose Red and Snow White

Spark Productions’ Snow and Rose is coming to Frankston next month.

Snow White and Rose Red are as close as sisters can be, and after their father’s death they seek solace in a world of their own making – a world where the animals and trees are friendly and the girls are free to roam, explore and be happy. However, they soon discover an evil curse has overtaken the woods in their new world, and as reality slowly blends with fantasy, they must face their fears and break the curse before they are split apart for ever.

This is the story that unfolds in Snow and Rose, Spark Productions’ contemporary dance work based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale Snow White and Rose Red. Spark’s performance is full of magic, fear and courage. It explores familial relationships, coping with difficult emotions, and has curriculum links woven throughout to delight and engage Victorian students.

Spark Productions is a company of dancers aged 8-25 who are accompanied by a live orchestra during performances. Founded by Alex Dellaportas in 2016, Spark’s goal is to explore concepts, history, ideas, themes, issues and personal stories all through the minds and movement of young people.  “I feel there’s nothing better than learning through experience, and that’s exactly what Spark provides,” Ms Dellaportas said. “Snow and Rose also has an important message about dealing with trauma and big emotions and about balancing emotion and reason in one’s life – all things that are relevant to the young people we’re working with.”

There will be two performances of Snow and Rose at Frankston Arts Centre on Thursday, June 24 – a performance for schools at 12.30pm, which will include a Q&A with performers afterwards, and one for all ages at 7.30pm. Schools also have the option of hosting a dance story workshop featuring sessions on choreography from the show facilitated by cast members and accompanied by a violinist.

Snow and Rose is not only for children and youth; it was created by young people as part of our mission to celebrate their voices as artistic equals with important stories to tell,” Ms Dellaportas said. “The show speaks to young hearts and minds. This offers a deeper learning experience where students feel empowered to explore and respond to the questions and themes the show raises.”
