An enchanting Christmas tale, this masked performance tells the story of two very different children; a little Polish girl, Helda and a rich diplomat's son, Jurgen, whose adventures together break down class barriers on Christmas Eve. Helda is cold and alone. She may be poor, but her imagination is filled with her grandfather's folk tales taught to her through the enchanting voice of the cello. Jurgen is surrounded by beautifully wrapped presents but needs a friend to help make his everyday magical.

Once Jurgen has invited Helda to warm herself by the fire, Helda takes him on this journey of creation and fantasy. When the clock strikes midnight and the silver moon is high in the air, the two friends will never be the same again...

A magical and touching story, Jurgen learns that friendship cannot be bought and that imagination is the dearest thing to us.

Using live music, shadow puppetry, and masked play, the aim of this show is to promote creativity through recycled objects and to show an alternative non-commercial Christmas, as well as touching on themes of difference, friendship, intergenerational relationships and solidarity. Suitable for ages 4+
