About the Show

Theatre-Rites and the British Library Learning

An intimate performance inspired by the fairy tales and papercuts of Hans Christian Andersen, accompanied by an Exhibition.

As loose pages fly from a pile of old leather books, three performers create whole worlds out of paper, conjuring tin soldiers and ugly ducklings and exploring how stories let our imagination take flight
