An updated version of the classic children’s fairytale, Windmill Theatre’s Rumpelstiltskin sees the eponymous imp reimagined as a much-feted fashion designer. However, the essence of the story remains true to the original, and for all the added high-fashion and glamour, the real purpose of Rumpelstiltskin remains a want for human connection.
In this video from Windmill the production’s director, Rosemary Myers, and its designer Jonathon Oxlade talk through the show’s creative process and how the many different facets come together to create a compelling piece of family theatre. Composer Jethro Woodward explains how the music of the show helps channel the vibrancy of the piece, and Paul Capsis, the actor tasked with bringing Rumpelstiltskin to life, tells us what drew him to being part of the performance.
