Teater Refleksion (Denmark) present

SUITABLE FOR AGES 5 - 8 YEARS & FAMILIES RUNNING TIME: 45 MINS There it is. The egg! Everyone is on tenterhooks because in a moment the duckling will come out of its egg, and the performance can begin. Watch the duckling dance through life in a chicken coop where different is wrong, and where each step is all about following the others. And that’s not at all easy when you are a clumsy little dumpling. But a wondrous transformation awaits! The Ugly Duckling is a delightful puppet performance without words, inspired by dance, and accompanied by new interpretations of classical music. A yarn spun from Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved fairy tale. “Delightful ducks and meddlesome hens translate Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale into animation theatre with minute, precise physical gestures and imaginative twisting of classic musical compositions.” Børneteateravisen PLEASE BOOK TICKETS IN ADVANCE ON 0115 846 7777 www.refleksion.dk
