A celebration of Hans Christian Andersen’s storytelling prowess and the powerful tale of The Ugly Duckling inspire this beautiful performance for the whole family.


Join performance group dybwikdans from Norway as they present the classic tale of The Ugly Duckling with one dancer and one narrator. Enjoy Hans Christian Andersen’s story of the signet which grows up awkwardly amongst the ducks, and its tireless pursuit to find out where it really belongs.
Originally created in 2008 when the Norwegian city of Stavanger was the European Capital of Culture, the show has been much acclaimed at other events, including performances at Dansens Hus in Oslo, The Artic Arts Festival in northern Norway, and bOing! Festival in the UK, and was nominated for the Norwegeian arts industry prize Gullsekken in 2012.

dybwikdans is now greatly looking forward to presenting this beautiful story here in Odense, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen.
