The Berlin artist duo BADABOOMBERLIN has teamed up for the first time with H.C. Andersens Hus – Ville Vau to create a new and playful performance that brings H.C. Andersen world to life.
Andersen’s fascination with the modern technology of the time – the railway and the telegraph line between Europe and America. The performance revolves around the enthusiasm for technology found in the fairy tales, but also explores the fear and anxiety of technological development. Is technology good or bad? Does it bring us closer together or further apart? These are questions H.C. Andersen asked himself – questions we are still trying to find answers to 200 years later.
