Experience the weird and wonderful fairytale characters of Hans Christian Andersen like never before.

Children and the young at heart, let's gather around the table for a birthday party. Follow two busy waiters as they add final touches to an assortment of place settings. The mystery guests will arrive in time, ready to delight you.

This performance-installation for families taps into the imagination, using ingenious props, special effects, music and projected film to illuminate a room full of fantastic Andersen characters in enthralling and surprising ways.

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