Stepmother/ Stepfather – Pavilion Dance South West, Bournemouth

Choreographer: Arthur Pita  Director: Arthur Pita Reviewer: Sophie Huggins While fairy tale folklore usually evokes feelings of familiar, reminiscent childhood, there is something not quite so innocent in Arthur Pita’s double bill of subverted storytelling.
