Rumpelstilzchen is the latest feature film by BalletBoyz. Bringing the spellbinding fairy tale to life in a playful, novel reimagining, the actors communicate the story through movement and gestural narration. The film features scenes that include a pool of tears, the transformation of straw into gold, a wild wedding reception and a spooky dance around a fireside. 


The unique nature of Rumpelstilzchen makes it relevant to teachers from all disciplines across the performing arts, including dance, drama, music and theatre studies. Rumpelstilzceh Revealed is a FREE digital resource pack, which includes access to watch the film, and enables teachers to delve in with their students to explore Rumpelstilzchen's groundbreaking non-verbal method of storytelling.
