The Little Matchgirl - new production by Arthur Pita


Recommended Posts

I've put details of this production in another part of the forum, but thought you lovey Doing Dance people might be interested.   See here for discussion: http://www.balletcoforum.com/index.php?/topic/5215-the-little-matchgirl-new-production-by-arthur-pita/


If you live within striking distance of Ipswich I'm sure this would make a lovely change from the Nutcracker!!  Starring Corey Annand (who was Greta in The Metamorphosis) as the Matchgirl.  Corey graduated from Elmhurst in 2012.



Thursday 12 - Tuesday 24 December, various times





Celebrated director & choreographer Arthur Pita brings his magical new dance theatre show The Little Match Girl to DanceEast this Christmas.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen's classic Christmas story, this touching tale of an impoverished young street girl's hopes and dreams is beautifully told through dance, song and original live music.

A snowy stage sets the scene for an icy cold Christmas Eve, where the Little Match Girl paces the emptying streets, shivering and desperate, trying to sell her matches. Cold, hungry and with just one final match flame to keep her warm, she sees a vision of her beloved grandmother. Leaving her troubled life behind, the Little Match Girl is guided up into the night sky by her grandmother who takes her to the moon. Now, on a clear night, if you look closely, you might see the light of a shooting star, or is it a match burning brightly?

Award-winning choreographer Pita returns to DanceEast following recent successes God's Garden and Critics' Circle National Dance Award-winning The Metamorphosis.
