Hans Christian Andersen wrote many stories which have largely gone unknown, and which deserve more attention! Stories, which, like his more famous works, are based on his own life, and share his hopes of gaining love and recognition. Stories, which teach you about life, and that dreams can come true if you dare to believe.

To truly express these stories, words are not enough. What better way to interpret these feelings than dancing, acting and mime?

The presentation of each story is unique, created in collaboration between the choreographer and dancers.

The 10 stories presented are: The Naughty Boy, Two Maidens, The Goblin and the Grocer, The Daisy, Five Peas from a Pod, The Storks, The Drop of Water, The Jumpers, It’s Quite True and The Darning Needle. The performances take place at different locations and times around Odense. Come along and see if you can guess which story is being told.
