Anna Nekrassova: Before Thumbelina

3 and 4 November at TEHDAS Theatre I

I am a desert, full of tumbleweeds. No flowers, no rain. Fear crawls towards me, digs itself out from the dry ground, takes me in its tight embrace and whispers: “What if yet this seed will change nothing?”

Before Thumbelina is an everyday fairytale for adults. Telling a story about a person’s struggles; challenges with infertility, dreams and fears.

Carried by song, rhythms as well as puppet and object theatre, the first solo performance by Anna Nekrassova focuses on the moment before H. C. Andersen’s renowned story of Thumbelina. The very moment is focused on the story’s Mother, a character we only get to see by glimpse in the original tale.

Before Thumbelina will premiere at TIP-Fest during the festival’s first day.
