The Last Baguette present
‘The Little Match Girl’
London. The last evening of the year. The snow is falling. A little girl struggles fiercely through the dark streets. In a vain attempt to stay warm she strikes a match, then a second and third. In the fatal cold the flames blaze to life and the friendly flickering fire guides her to fantastic Christmas visions. With each strike we are transported into her tumultuous hopes and dreams.
In this magic, humorous and poignant show, The Last Baguette use visual storytelling and live music to shine a light on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic winter tale.
The Last Baguette makes fast-paced, irreverent physical comedy and believe in the power of silliness to talk about important issues of our times. We are company in residence at Pound Arts, Corsham and have performed in the UK, France, Switzerland and Canada. The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools. The theatre we make is entertaining, accessible and eccentric.
