Le Festival du Futur Composé stands out from the crowded theatre calendar thanks to its special remit: namely, to promote autistic artists and actors. It's been held biennially since 2000, and has met with such a positive response that it's already exported events to Italy and Britain. Behold this new production of Snow White, courtesy of doctor and festival founder Gilles Roland-Manuel, and you'll see why: the company update the fairy tale with an irresistible spectacle that melds together theatre, acrobatics, dance and music. The feisty heroine is a world away from the dainty damsel familiar from the Disney film, and the whole show glows with creative energy. It strikes a note of encouragement for initiatives of this kind.
