Maguy Marin's staging of Prokofiev's Cinderella was an unparalleled success throughout it's world tour, propelled by a choreographic vision so extraordinarily original and magical that it evokes universal memories of childhood. In Marin's childlike approach to the work, the characters appear as living dolls with human feelings, akin to the way children anthropomorphize their toys. The fairy tale is set in a dollhouse, the Fairy Godmother is a robot, Cinderella's ride to the ball is a toy car, and the Prince's is a rocking horse. Enchanting and brilliant, this is not your mama's Cinderella.
