About the event

Cannibalism, werewolf trials, deceit and murder... Marie Hassenpflug and the Brothers Grimm are editing the darkness out of old stories. Little by little, the voices of the storytellers who created the tales are eroded away. What will be saved and what will be forgotten? The  Grandmothers Grimm explores women’s role in the creation of the Brothers  Grimm’s famous fairy-tale anthology. Discover a night of folk and fairy tales unlike any you've ever heard before.
