Frogpond

“Do not run around with trash and soil, for you never know, who`s home it might spoil.

Frogpond is a dance theater performance about the importance of clean water.

Moor Frog Molly returns to her birth pond for a big family reunion, only to find out, that her beloved home has been soild and spoild. While waiting for her relatives, the spirit of the pond; Peter Pond, wakes up.

How can small little Molly save her friend and home? Or perhaps she needs some help, maybe from the audience.

” Frogpond is a warm-hearted and interactive dance theatre performance by two wonderful actors/dancers, Nina and Kasperi. Frogpond gained lots of praise when it was performed at the Embassy of Finland in Washington D.C. in November 2019. The story about the importance of clean water is also so important for all of us these days”.
