The impressive play of coulours enchants the audience.

This November, World Cultures Festival 2019 – The Nordics is staging "nobody but a princess…" by phase7 performing.arts Berlin. This open-air extravaganza will unfold in front of Hong Kong’s famous skyline at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza in Kowloon.

"nobody but a princess…" is a high-tech feast inspired by Danish novelist H. C. Andersen’s fairytale. A modern-day princess, on her journey to young adulthood, discovers a world of wonders as she is trying to realize her dreams.

At the centre of this production is its highly immersive set – a 360 degree-viewable 3D dome with a kinetic sculpture, beautifully lit up by dazzling lights.

Under the direction of Sven Sören Beyer, "nobody but a princess…" explores what an H.C. Andersen fairytale would be like in our times. Travelling across a world of fantasy, the modern punk princess meets mystical creatures, spectacular wonders and her very own “prince”.

The international cast includes esteemed artists from Germany, young talents from Denmark, and dancers from our partners at the Hong Kong Ballet.

Newly composed rock songs by celebrated guitarist Uwe Bossert (band Reamonn) will be performed by our heroine from Denmark: the 17-year-old Marie Schou, discovered at the Royal Danish Ballet School, perfectly represents the rebellious princess of the 21st century. Jacob Zinn, her friend and prince in the story, has varied talents as both a musical performer and the frontman of a well-known hard rock band in Denmark.

Dates: 8/9/10 November, 2019
Time: 7pm, 8:30pm & 9:30pm
Location: Hong Kong Cultural Centre Piazza, Kowloon, Hong Kong
