The Snow Queen

devised by the company

directed by Hilary Coleman

 

 

THE SNOW QUEEN

 

            Director Hilary Coleman worked with five performers to adapt Hans Christian Andersen’s well-known story (the writing of which had been ‘sheer joy; it came dancing out over the paper.’)

 

            Gerda’s search for her missing friend Kai is an archetypal hero quest story. On her way she encounters robbers, reindeer, ravens, a lot of cold weather, the horrors of theme parks and some fairly devastating flowers!

 

            Come fill up your glasses and let us be merry

            For to rob and to plunder it is our intent

            As we roam through the valley

            With the lilies and the roses

            And the beauty of Kashmir lay drooping his head

            Then away

            Then away

            Then away

            To those caves in yonder mountains where the robbers retreat

 

            Hark, hark in the distance there’s footsteps approaching

            Stand, stand and deliver it is our watch cry

            As we roam through the valley

            With the lilies and the roses

            And the beauty of Kashmir lay drooping his head

            Then away

            Then away

            Then away

            To those caves in yonder mountains where the robbers retreat

 

            It’s your gold and your silver or your lives in defending

            We will laugh at your anger and scorn your distress

            As we roam through the valley

            With the lilies and the roses

            And the beauty of Kashmir lay drooping his head

            Then away

            Then away

            Then away

            To those caves in yonder mountains where the robbers retreat
