The Fairytale

at Frascati Amsterdam
The White Rat as herself. Lucy Brouwer as The Faerie Queen. Genevieve Pring as The Queen. Frans Pal La Croix as The King. Cole & Bela Brooks-Lyon as Faeries.

This is the story of what childless monarchs get up to in order to save their kingdom.  Caught up in the litany of ruling families which often focuses on producing an heir and keeping the public somewhere between amusement and submission, The White Rat offers a fanciful interpretation of how far power can take us and what happens when power reaches both divine and natural limits.  These are my versions of the tale Henri Pourrat retold in Tresor des contes (Treasury of Tales).
