Ensemble Contemporánea with the Danish artist, performer Fritz Gerhard Berthelsen retells the cruel fairy tale “The Shadow” by Hans Christian Andersen from 1847 in a performing art concert-performance. It is about a shadow taking over his master’s life. It focuses on a relevant theme of creating an identity and maintaining it in an impenetrable world. Berthelsen moves around in the role as the main character a wise man, his shadow and a princes,  surrounded by live-electronics and video projections on a screen. Music performed at clarinet and bass clarinet is challenged by a laptop with beats and loops. The interaction between these artistic sources forms the line in the story. With this idea, Contemporánea has set the focus on an important issue told through contemporary art.
