‘Hänsel & Gretel’s Arenas’ is a temporary pavilion to hold a number of discussions in which children and adults, with the assistance of marionettes, will debate the ethics contained in the tale ‘Hänsel & Gretel’. It is constructed in the roof of La Casa Encendida, the most active cultural center in Madrid.
The structured is composed by more than 6.000 hanging decorative objects and toys. A cloud of colorful light plastic elements, all of them designed originally to awake desires in people of different ages, and massively produced by delocated industrial networks. The construction offers a post-marketing version of the witch’s children trap of ginger cookies.
