A promenade performance direct from Denmark. A long table is set for a birthday party and two waiters are on the job of their life – to wait on a table of fantastic personalities.

Prepare to meet Hans Christian Andersen's weird and wonderful characters in this innovative installation-based performance. Using ingenious props, special effects, music and projected film to illuminate each character, this innovative performance for students will tap into the imagination, exploring these well-known stories in unexpected, enthralling ways.

Please note this performance contains a small image of the Emperor in his new clothes
