Snow Q is a re-imagining of Hans Christian Anderson’s much-loved fable, The Snow Queen, combining poetry, original music and visuals. This dramatized re-telling uses Anderson’s enigmatic tale of friendship, love and loyalty to explore contemporary themes of social isolation, gender, sexuality, migration and exile.
At the centre of the story are lifelong friends Gerda and Kai, two lost young people. When winter comes, ice enters Kai’s heart and when Kai disappears, Gerda embarks on a quest to rescue their lost friend, meeting a wise storytelling crow to guide the way.
Writer Maria Jastrzębska. Snow Q features originally composed music, specially created video projections, sound design and poetry in English, Polish and “Ponglish” to show how language can transcend borders.
Snow Q is touring in February 2020 including February 21st at Clapham Library.
