Unfolding Andersen

Commissioned by the British Library in 2005.

An intimate performance inspired by the fairy tales and paper cut-outs of Hans Christian Andersen, accompanied by an exhibition at the British Library. 

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

Performances at The British Library in 2005.
