Making her OCC debut, the ever unpredictable Lena Kitsopoulou adds the subtitle “First Blood” (after Rambo: First Blood, the American film with Sylvester Stallone) to the well-known fairytale by the Brothers Grimm.
In so doing, she subverts both, exhorting viewers to get over fairy stories in general and accept the ‘evil’ within them. “No one ever lived happily ever after”, she explains as she challenges us to embrace her grown up Little Red Riding Hood.

Little Red Riding Hood - The First Blood will be presented on 18 June 2014 in Paris at the Theatre des Abbesses, in the context of the International Festival Chantiers d'Europe by the Théâtre de la Villle.
