100°C: cose di Andersen


100°C: cose di Andersen

A mysterious voice introduces the four characters from Andersen’s imaginary. Red Shoes, The Little Mermaid, Toy Soldier and The Ugly Duckling live through a shipwreck told by the use of onomatopoeias and sounds, dotted with small mutual nasty tricks and challenges to overcome. The actors manage lights and music directly from the stage, challenging each other in between tumbles, arguments and cartoon-style runs.
Children are shown an ironic reworking of the most controversial issues to be found in Andersen’s work – death, seen through the lens of cynicism or spirituality, often childish and free violence, failure and redemption, characters’ loneliness of their almost always problematic or confrontational meetings.
