BREAD CRUMBS is a warped retelling of the well-known fable Hansel and Gretel its a crass and highly stylised exploration into the link between gender roles, domestic abuse and the scarring impact it has on young people.

Located in a world somewhere between the realms of a Grimm brothers fairy tale and the industrial landscape of suburban Dandenong, the reality of abuse and trauma is gradually revealed through a series of naive stories and games played out by two siblings in their attempt to survive the journey home.

In search of happiness, the two children set off on an epic adventure desperate to discover a new life only to find that running away is sending them in circles.

Revelling in creating a dark and heightened examination of the Australian zeitgeist, devisors Ruby Johnston and Benjamin Nichol explain that black comedy is an excellent vessel to explore complex taboo issues that may provoke different thoughts and perspectives.

Domestic violence is a prominent issue in Australia and this work shows the impact, insecurities and problems it has on the younger generation, said Nichol.

A self-devised work created by a team of recent graduates of the Victorian College of the Arts, BREAD CRUMBS is narrative told through the lens of childhood innocence dealing with uncertain circumstances.

Beginning as a traditional fairy tale, BREAD CRUMBS quickly morphs into a dark and sinister world where anything is possible and nothing is at it seems its mystical, magical and dangerous
