Description A young girl tricks her blind stepmother into buying her a pair of risqué red shoes. After dancing, spinning and revelling wildly in the freedom of her sensual new prize, she is horrified to discover the shoes won't come off ... or stop dancing. Luckily one man has the chops to provide a solution. This dark, witty and highly original take on Hans Christian Andersen's classic story sees a wonderfully warped cast dipping into music, mime, dance and devilishness to entertain while reminding us of life's precariousness.
