Performed by Prague's highly acclaimed Archa Theatre, DREAMING.ANDERSEN is an explosive multimedia, multicultural performance piece that fuses theater, hip-hop music, classical Chinese music, traditional Czech animation, cutting-edge video technology, puppetry, graffiti and more. It uses classic Hans Christian Andersen tales to tell the stories of young performers struggling to find a platform for their own artistic expression. Here, the tale of a young Chinese immigrant singer trying to achieve fame in Prague recalls The Little Match Stick Girl, while other Andersen fables like The Little Mermaid, Lucky Peer and Aladdin's Lamp are echoed in the young people's tales of struggle. Throughout, Andersen's presence looms like a muse, appearing in the midst of graffiti art, as a silhouetted shadow, and in other surprising places.
