Not for the faint hearted, iRONS is inspired by Grimm's Snow White and Anne Sexton's poem, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs.
A sumptuous, visual / physical production, the work explores the themes from the point of view of Snow White's stepmother, the queen ~ the transient power of youth, beauty and sex and its impact on women. How women are perceived as they age and why powerful beautiful women are still frequently portrayed as evil in our culture. We must combat stereotypes to rise victorious.
Directed by the multi~award winning Melanie Jordan, iRONS is Lotus Stone's second production and brings together a female creative team with lighting designer Laura Hawkins and sound design by Dr Linda O Keeffe. Lucas Chih-Peng Kao joins the team behind the camera.
