“Wake-up Sleeping Beauty!” deconstructs the classical archetypes of traditional fairy tales, allowing young audiences to choose for themselves what “happily ever after” looks like. By countering gender stereotypes and using the convention of ‘storytelling’ as a metaphor for social scripts and expectations we are bringing our audience intimately together and including them in a conversation. It is our intent to invite children in on this important discussion, encouraging them to decide for themselves the way they want the “story” to go.
