We instead, find ourselves in 17th Century England, with a remorseful 300-year old wolf and a frozen-to-death Little Red Riding Hood. Our Little Red does not travel by herself into the afterlife. Rather, she is guided by her protector and accompanied by slaves and indentured servants while navigating the dimensions of limbo to purgatory.
This journey, a metaphorical representation of her transformation from a weak, victimized girl to an empowered, self-assured woman, is the distinguishing mark of Mr. Thomas' brilliant creation. This enigmatic rendition of a classic fairy-tale through the medium of concert dance, is an exploration of gender, rape, sexuality, morality, violence, regret, patriarchy and female empowerment.
