About

Sisters Grimm’s extensive history in all aspects of the magical world of the theatre gives them unique and fresh creative perspectives to ideate and execute theatrical production, film and brand communication across all channels in a seamless and integrated way.

Ethos and the future

Particularly through INALA, they have succeeded in creating a respectful cross cultural and multi-disciplined work, which maintains artistic integrity whilst being inherently commercial, maximising audience potential. INALA had a live reach of tens of thousands, PR reach of tens of millions and resulted in the employment of hundreds of people.

In their theatrical productions, they are particularly interested in finding contemporary ways of bringing cultural traditions into the modern day through their theatrical artistic productions maintaining high standards and absolute excellence at their core.

They want to continue to create authentic work that develops and increases the audience for arts by bringing together different disciplines and cultures, in a way that is inclusive, vibrant and entertaining for all.  

They currently have 2 new productions in development & are also delivering bespoke creations and commissions for various platforms.

 

 

"Inala, produced by Sisters Grimm, premiered at Edinburgh International Festival 2013 to sell out audiences.  Performed at the 2,800 capacity Playhouse Theatre Inala had a phenomenal opening for a new work created by two young producers, Ella Spira and Pietra Mello-Pittman.”

"Visually impressive. An ambitious, exciting collaboration and a visual treat."

-Barbara Bryan, Edinburgh Guide

 

“I am just so thrilled for them, and so full of admiration for them and what they have achieved.  It has to be one of the most exciting things I’ve seen come out of someone in the Royal Ballet company and so I think that this is the most superb achievement.”

-Dame Monica Mason DBE, Former Director of Royal Ballet, London

 

"It’s at once a high-end ballet production, a live concert and a tenderly affecting performance of stunning, contemporary South African vocal music."

-David Pollock, The Independent
