Through the Mirror, tales from childhood
Our Latest project, where everyone has a part to play.
We re-tell the classic Fables of Aesop with our music,introducing children and family audiences to our instruments, the musicians,and the animal characters that we portray.
The ensemble wear specially designed headdresses of their animal characters, designed by acclaimed Danish Scenographer Kirsten Brink.
With this project we can give schools’ workshops,where children work with the ensemble and then join in with our performance.
