Based on the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, this is a heartwarming adaption through song and dance of The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Little Mermaid, Five Peas from a Pod, The Ugly Duckling, and The Little Match Girl. Written, directed, and with music by Yukinosuke Itoi (FUKAIPRODUCE HAGOROMO), and choreographed by Shigehiro Ide (idevian crew) in his customary liberated and unusual way, the show breathes new life into timeless

masterpieces that have been loved by children across the world regardless of the era. With their distinctive dance and powerful singing, these affectionate characters jump out of the pages of books to conjure up the beauty of an unadulterated world and the slightly eerie atmosphere that runs throughout Andersen’s tales. Premiered at "Toshima Summer Arts Festival” in 2015.
