23 November 2011 – 8 January 2012 and due to tour India in August 2012
Presented by Unicorn Theatre with Trestle Artistic Director, Emily Gray, working as Movement Consultant
Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen, this telling was developed by Indian writer, Anupama Chandreshekar, supported by the British Council through Connections through Culture UK-India.
After a freak snowstorm on the southern tip of India, Kumar disappears. Gowri, his best friend, discovers that he has been captured by the formidable Snow Queen, and embarks on a journey across the length and breadth of the continent to save him. From the burning heat of southern India, through lush backwaters, glitzy Bollywood and desolate bandit country, our brave heroine strives to bring the warmth of friendship to the icy north.
Trestle is currently working with the Snow Queen director Rosamunde Hutt, the British Council out in India and the show’s creative team to transform the show into a touring production and take it to south India in August 2012.
