A madcap adventure as two cheeky chappies trick the Emperor into thinking he is wearing a divine set of new clothes.
An adventurous take on a children’s classic, with Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of one very vain (and foolish) Emperor brought to life via beautiful puppetry, shadow work and a mysterious new invention. Plus, keep an eye out for the elephant in the room.
