A simple story with a sad start and a happy ending.
Unfortunately, the director for this performance doesn't understand much of the story. How can you show all the roles of Cinderella with only two dancers: father, Cinderella, step-sisters, step-mother, the good fairy, the prince ...?
To ensure that the performance runs smoothly, the director decides to stay with the performance and play the stepmother and the good fairy herself. She also takes care of many other things. A mule, a chest, clothes, a broom, a chimney, a carriage and a clock. But what to do with a pumpkin, mice and rats in a theater?
The director has a lot to think about.
She is hurled from sad to cheerful, from angry to insecure, confused, hurt and moved. She increasingly doubts about the outcome. She no longer knows the story ... Who helps her further?

Cinderella is an original adaptation of Charles Perrault's fairy tale. The music is an adaptation of Prokofiev's Cinderella for John Gevaert's duet, performed live by Pianoduo Mephisto. With this as a starting point, Jack Timmermans' choreographed dance unfolds as a game between director and performers.
