The Dark Side of the Woods
An exploration of fairy tales. Audiences gather at the mouth of the woods to witness characters, both familiar and exotic, emerge to tell their versions of admired mythology. Drawing from cultures and traditions all over the world, The Dark Side of the Woods adds to the understanding of classical oral narrative storytelling and its relation to our present world. Through a process called Individualized Collaboration, the Nettles allow each individual artist to research and come up with their own inspiration upon a common theme. They then come together to construct a collective cohesive mise-en-scène. Nettles’ The Dark Side of the Woods draws from classic mythologies to tell the untold stories of witches, wolves, ogres, crows, princes and princesses.
