H.C. Andersen Festivals 2019 opens with a gala performance of The Five Corners of the World, a compelling dance performance through a magical universe, presented by Pivot Dance Company and accompanied by the Odense Symphony Orchestra.

In a whirlwind of joyous dramatic energy, the essential elements of the world of Hans Christian Andersen are brought to life through captivating music, singing, the spoken word, innovative new circus, impressive modern dance and technologically advanced scenography.

The performance has been created by Mette-Louise and Jesper Kryger of PIVOT, winners of this year’s H.C. Andersen’s Ærespris 2019.

The performance is inspired by the 200-year anniversary of Hans Christian Andersen’s journey from Odense to Copenhagen, taking us on a captivating voyage through a magical universe – we know the four corners of the world, but where do we find the fifth? Five journeys with five fairy tales told through a technologically-sophisticated universe with world-class performers.

Please note that whilst this performance is primarily told through the universally accessible mediums of music, dance and performance, there are storytelling and narration components in Danish.
