A Dance horror

The well-known fairy tale about the strong sibling bond of two children lost in a forest, about strong temptation, about human mistakes, about making the right decision, about determination not to give up, about conscience, hope, evil that punishes itself, about experience gained on a difficult journey, about mysterious beings accompanying this journey. A poor woodcutter, two children and an evil stepmother. When it gets dark and the children are left alone in the forest, Hansel climbs a tree and sees a light in the distance. Then, a gingerbread house, a witch, an oven, a shovel, ... How well we all know this!
