KHM 185 - The Poor Boy in the Grave - Storyteller: Red Phoenix

Read the original story: in German, in English

KHM 185

On the 17th December 2011 a group of artists and a storyteller came together to film and present to a live audience four Grimm’s Fairy Tales with a seasonal twist to create a performance of ‘A Grimm Christmas’.

The performance was in English, and used multimedia to present images created by the artists for each story to projected, from a giant ‘Grimm’s Fairy Tales’ book, behind the Storyteller.

The stories were:
The Three Little Men in the Wood, artist Meg Day
The Poor Boy in the Grave, artist Charlie Timberlake
Herr Korbes, artist Meg Day
The Golden Goose, artist Jayson Adams
Storyteller for all four stories was Red Phoenix

The artists worked from the original stories and a recording of the storyteller, Red Phoenix, telling the tale to produce the images. Once the images were complete Red Phoenix then used the images to support the stories in front of the live audience.
