During Christmas night, the windows sparkle with colorful lights, people singing and laughing, tasty smells floating through the streets, which tirelessly open in front of the dressed up guests. On this magical night, everyone wants to be with the people they love.
Little Match Seller is a wordless puppet theatre performance based on H.C. Andersen’s sorrowful tale.
It is a tale about a girl fighting her destiny with the help of her strong imagination and a matchbox that once belonged to her grandmother.
The play uses black box technique, immersing the audience in a beautiful puppet reality. The actors will look like giants, the puppets will do wonderful tricks, each of which will last as long as one match burns.
