Snow Queen!


Blenheim Palace / Culture Creative 2022


The Brief

We’d had a wonderful Christmas animating the Nutcracker interiors at Blenheim Palace in 2021 so we were delighted to be asked back by Culture Creative to be part of the story for the 2022 experience – the Snow Queen!


What We Did

The new theme gave us the opportunity to create a fabulous team of powerful women under the talented eye of Rachel Fullegar. Using movement and physicality to unlock character, Rachel and the team created their own individual Snow Queens to animate their icy palace in Blenheim’s Long Gallery. incorporating an enchanted mirror and Culture Creative’s astonishing frozen throne, the team created a series of magical encounters suitable for a diverse audience across the Christmas period.


The Result

The team successfully delivered forty-five days of performance and delighted audiences, both young and old, with their moral ambiguity and playful performance skills – effectively supporting the story of the installation whilst adding a magical personal encounter for every audience member to their experience.
