A vivid musical show makes garbage sorting an instructive fairytale for children.
”Clutter Hans” is a perky and modern adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s tale of Clumsy Hans.
In the original fairytale Clumsy Hans is a farmboy living in the countryside with his two brothers who are considered to be very clever. A princess has declared that she will marry the man who can best speak for himself. Clumsy Hans and his two brothers compete for her hand in marriage.
HeartBeat Group’s version is presented as a ’tale of recycling.’ Clutter Hans is creatively using the garbage he finds along the way as musical instruments. This adds a new dimension and a positive message to the old story: ”When we look on garbage with new and innovative eyes it becomes a resource.”
Clutter Hans is important in a time when environment and sustainability is on everyone’s lips. With a playful approach and contagious humour the lesson is made personal and the problem is clear for the children who go home with a new knowledge about how to sort garbage and how to care for their environment.
HeartBeat Group’s message is that environmental awareness not only has to be debated – it has to be lived!
