Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
Montreal-based Lemieux Pilon 4D Art mixes live performances with video projections in its visually-arresting retelling of the Beauty and the Beast at BAM’s Opera House.
Shelley Duvall presents Faerie Tale Theatre’s kitsch-heavy adaptation, starring Susan Sarandon and Klaus Kinski and borrowing heavily from Jean Cocteau’s 1946 version.
In “East of the Sun and West of the Moon,” a Norwegian version of the tale collected by Asbjørnsen and Moe, the beast is recast as a white bear.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Assistant Editor Tommy Mira y Lopez.
