Little Red Riding Hood! – A voice echoes in the silence…
And in the imagination immediately surfaces the image of the little girl with the red cape on her shoulders.
Probably the most famous version, the nineteenth-century Grimm version, comes to mind, but few know the variants predating even Perrault, the popular and oral ones that Yvonne Verdier collects in her essay The Needle and the Pin.

But in all versions Little Red Riding Hood inevitably strays from the protective sphere of her mother’s womb and finds herself alone in the woods.

A place of mystery and fascination, of temptation and transgression, the forest both hides and reveals, and that is precisely why it allows disobedience: far from the guarding maternal eyes, transgressing children face dangers and risks, namely their own fears. Naiveté and innocence must be, at least in part, abandoned in order to succeed in the complex and hostile adult world.
And, like adults, Little Red Riding Hood faces the universal questions, “Where are you going?”, “Which way will you take?”, “Who is here?”

Dragons can be killed or tamed, but one must in any case know them, just as each of us must do, child or adult, to overcome our fears. Because brave is not the one who has no fear, but the one who decides not to withdraw his gaze before it.

The languages of dance, figure theater and music will be the delicate tools through which to tell the story.
