Grimm's Rapunzel as a dark and twisted folk opera
Lowground is an exciting new work. An hour of musical theatre that turns Grimm's Rapunzel into a beautiful yet dark, folk opera with a medieval sensibility.Written by Adelaide songwriter Casey Thomson. Lowground features Thomson’s well crafted, original score played by a live ensemble of well known musicians drawn from the Baroque, Classical, Folk and Contemporary Adelaide scenes.
Bianka designed and created set and costumes for Lowground.
"She (Casey) takes the audience along with each character on a well thought out and somewhat spellbinding journey, made all the more delightful with Bianka Kennedy's costuming and the already mentioned set design. Kennedy's costuming captured each character perfectly, from skull adorned shoulder pads on the witch, to Rapunzel's very clever hoop skirt, reminiscent of a cage."
