Freely inspired by one of the western world’s best-loved fairytales, Suites curieuses alternates between shadow and light to reveal a sparkling quartet. In a subtle chassé-croisé, three men and woman come and go, mischievously embodying and breathing life into the famous characters from Little Red Riding Hood. With attention to detail and Cas Public’s trademark elegance and refinement, the wolf and Little Red Riding Hood wrestle with a host of objects that lend an unusual vitality to this timeless classic. This short piece has everything to captivate, seduce and appeal to the imagination of adults and children alike; and with this work, the company marks its 25th year of existence by turning over a new leaf: the ultimate work for all audiences aged 4 and up!
