The Snow Queen

The Snow Queen was a joint project done in Savonia UAS in Kuopio. My responsibility was designing and constructing the costumes. Designs were inspired by my own feelings and memories towards fairy tales and what I remember concidering fascinating in them as a child. The main idea was to emphasize all the different, mostly in their own way excentric, people that Kerttu meets while she is searching for Kai who has been taken by the Snow Queen.

The dance routine was to be enjoyed by the whole family. It was performed by the second year dance teacher students and the choreography done by the degree programme teachers, the main choreographer being Eeri Pihlajakari. It was performed in the Kuopio Music Centre in February 2012.
