Girl Meets Wolf: Little Red Riding Hood, Adaptation, and the Art of Storytelling
*Designated as an Exemplary Master's Project for 2014-15*In order to prepare my own adaptation of the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, I investigate not only what it is that fairy tales do, but also how they do it: the techniques used by the stories we think of as the original tales. In addition, I explore the technical aspects of adaptations of the story by some master storytellers of page, stage and screen, comparing ways they have layered and expanded meaning of the simple story by use of visual imagery across a variety of media. I consider why people adapt rather than create their own raw material. Why isn’t once enough?
