The Snow Queen

Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen for the XBox Generation.

A modernised adaption of Hans Christian Andersen's wintry tale, this version of 'The Snow Queen' has grown out of consultaion with families in an attempt to add relavence to a story written in 1844.

'Snow Queen' fast forwards nearly two centuries to reside in a world of online viruses, interactive gaming and social media identities. Kai is snatched from a familiar world into one of peril, having fallen hopelessly under an evil spell and into the waiting clutches of Snow Queen. Only his bond with Gerda can save him, as she refuses to believe that Kai is beyond her help and sets off fearlessly to his rescue, her journey augmented in a high-tech, visual feast of projection mapping.
