About the production
The production immerses the audience into the world of things and words from "The Snow Queen", the world of enchanting sounds and puppets. The audience sees Gerda just on her own.

Like a mirror, she reflects other characters, and follows these reflections. Gerda is still young in her memory. She doesn't notice the passage of time, and keeps looking for Kai."Gerda's Room" is about searching and fearing. It's about eternity that is always ready to meet us. We put this eternity into a word, and breathe it out on a frozen window so we can finally see something dear to us which we have long lost.

This show is growing the familiar plot out of the walls. The walls are like pages. They are turning the habitual towards something new and shocking. The Theatre of the Absurd and black humour have proved to be more congenial to Andersen that we thought at the beginning of our journey.
based on Hans Christian Andersen's
fairy tale The Snow Queen
