Sleeping Beauty: Research & Development towards a Social Critique of Fairy Tales
Here's a little Research & Development piece called Sleeping Beauty. It is devised as a social critique of fairy tales inspired by my extensive reading of Jack Zipes this term as part of my MA Drama at the Atrium, University of South Wales.
In this film I am Sleeping Beauty revealing the irony of sleeping for 100 years, waiting for my Prince to come and rescue me!
My aim is to create new stories that unearth the hidden ideology about womanhood within our fairy tales. By unpicking the threads, we can then weave a new type of story into the fabric of folk.
